Athletes of all ages and abilities, from first-timers to top elite athletes will participate in different distances including Half Ironman, Olympic, Sprint, and fun Relay events. The events provide a robust economic impact to their regions, draw strong media attention and each year one of the races is featured on a 60 minute national television program on TSN, “Canada’s Sports Leader.” The races have been praised internationally including 3 Series races recognized by Triathlete Magazine as “Top 10 Best Races in the World” in their categories. The events also often serve as Provincial Series, Championship, and World Qualifying events. The events have a festival feel and include an expo, kid's fun run, celebrity participation, incredible prizes, entertainment, great commemorative clothing, socials, corporate programs and clinics hosted by top international coaches and athletes.
The Series will kicks off with Canada's first open water triathlon in picturesque Shawnigan Lake featuring the Trans Canada trails and magnificent Kinsol Trestle.

Saskatoon is the next stop featuring the beautiful downtown river valley right in the midst of the famous Saskatoon Jazz Festival. In July, Vancouver plays host the fourth stop on the Series in the magnificent setting of the Spanish Banks beaches framed by the backdrop of the city skyline and panoramic North Shore Mountains. The final stop will take place Banff where participants will swim in pristine Two Jack Lake, cycle around the breathtakingly beautiful Minnewanka Loop, and a run through the town of Banff finishing down famous Banff Avenue.
