On August 22nd, Milton will play host to one of the few off-road triathlon/duathlon events that Ontario has to offer.
The swim will take place in the spring-fed waters of the Kelso Quarry. The bike portion will take place within Kelso Conservation Area, and the run will follow along various trails of the Niagara Escarpment.
There are three races to choose from. A triathlon consisting of a 1 km swim, 18 km bike, and 7.5 km run, mini tri with a 500 m swim, 7 km bike, and 4 km run, and a duathlon with a 3 km run, 18 km bike, and 7.5 km run.
20 XTERRA Canada Championship Spots (September 5th, 2010, Whistler B.C) will also be up for grabs. How they will be allocated is still to be determined however they will be distributed evenly between male and female in a combination of top finishers (with a roll down) and free raffle as part of the ‘mine’ over matter entry fee.
Organizers hope that the success of this race will result in more races in 2011 and a possible small off -road race series.
