24 Ironman Canada Spots Up For Grabs At The Muskoka 5150

Want a chance to race at the new IRONMAN Canada venue in Whistler, BC on August 25th?

The Subaru Triathlon Series is very pleased to announce that we have 24 age group spots to give away at our Muskoka 5150 event. IRONMAN Canada has been sold out for months and this is your last chance to get to that start line. Qualified athletes must understand and follow the below procedures in order to be eligible.

Qualification Process:
Prior to race day, at least 1 spot shall be tentatively allocated to each age group category (both male and female). Final slot allocation will be determined on race day based on the number of official starters. If there are no starters in a particular Age Group, then that slot will be moved to the next calculated Age Group within the gender.

Final slot allocation shall be representative of the actual number of Age Group starters in each category in the race. For example, if 8% of the Age Group starters are Female 40-44, then 8% of the slots are allocated to the Female 40-44 category.

NEW! We will be asking all athletes wanting to qualify for an IRONMAN spot to add their name and age group to our IRONMAN qualification board during the on-site registration process. This will help us determine before the race, how much competition per spot there is or how many spots may need to go to rolldown etc. The board will be highly visible during the registration process. Please be sure to add your name under the correct age group.

Athletes must come prepared to accept at the award ceremony.
  1. 1-Athletes MUST claim their slot in-person immediately after the Muskoka 5150 award ceremony. 
  2. All athletes must have cash, traveler's cheques or a cheque for the full payment of $700 CDN or the spot will be forfeited. We can accept credit card payment however there will be a service fee of $25 applied.
If an age group that was designated a spot does not accept it then that spot will go to "Rolldown" in order of fairness. The Age Group within the gender with the largest athletes-to-slots ratio will receive the first reallocated slot, followed by the next largest ratio receiving the second re-allocated slot (if applicable), and so on.

Victoria's Duathlon - 2013 Race Preview

Kickstart Your Triathlon Season With Victoria's Duathlon!

Nothing marks the start of the triathlon season better than the Subaru Triathlon Series Victoria's Duathlon. Now in its 20th year and formerly known as "Victoria's Brick Duathlon" this race has become a classic for all those triathletes and duathletes looking to put their training to the test!

A little about the course:
Victoria's Duathlon consists of a 4km run, followed by a 30km bike and finally a 4km run. Both the bike and run courses take place over rolling terrain.  The run courses are a simple out and back, with the trip out being mostly uphill and the return trip, therefore, being mostly downhill.  The second run is a repeat of the first run. The bike is also a simple out and back course with rolling hills.  Nothing too difficult but a good challenge none the less. Most elite athletes will complete the race in approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes while the average finisher will cross the line in 1 hour and 40 minutes.

Here is a great race recap from Craig Cassar, a Get Out There Magazine reporter:

Proceeds to Victoria D'Agostino Children's Benefit Fund
We've partnered with Victoria D'Agostino Children's Benefit Fund, which is part of the Kitchener and Waterloo Community Foundation. This year we will donate a portion of the race proceeds to the fund. The Fund will help to build a better community, now and for generations to come, by providing special awards to elementary students in the community.  You can find out more by visiting their website here.

How Can You Register?
There are still plenty of spots lefts for this race. To register visit our website at and select "Victoria's" from the race menu on the left. On this page you will also find all the race details, costs and any information you will need come race day. There are also course maps in the event you want to test out the course before the race!

Have you done this race in past? We, as well as all our newbie triathletes and experienced ones who haven't done this race would love to know your thoughts on the race, training or race-day tips so feel free to post comments in the comments box below!

See you all on Monday, May 20th!
