Three months until the Inaugural ITU Multisport World Championships Festival!

Triathlon Updates and News

Our goal with I Am Tri is to curate the most pertinent news, videos, and motivation for starting and experienced triathletes alike.

Today marks the official three-month countdown to the ITU Multisport World Championships Festival in Penticton! The local organizing committee and ITU are working hard to prepare for thousands of athletes from around the world to descend on Penticton for what promises to be an incredible ten-day festival.

Last week the first athlete newsletter went out to all registered participants. We sent this via the lists shared from the National Federations. Do you think you should have received this newsletter but didn’t? Email [email protected] to be added to the distribution list. Watch for weekly updates in your inbox on everything related to the festival.

There has been incredible interest in athletes looking to add another race to their roster in Penticton as an open wave athlete. Thinking of doing another Duathlon? Perhaps adding Aquathlon as a warm up effort to your Long Distance World Championship race? You can compete on the same great course as the World Championship race in the final wave of the day. If you’re interested in racing but require another bike, look to our rental partners Freedom Bikes and Raceday Transport to add whatever bike you need for the day.

Speaking of bikes, if you need to transport yours, we have a great option in sponsor Raceday Transport. They will pack your bike, ship it to Penticton and re-assemble it for your race. There are other options available if you’re the type who likes to build your bike yourself.

There are activities galore for you, your family and your friends in Penticton. Want to purchase extra tickets for your family and friends to attend the Pasta Party? You can do that here. Want to find fun activities for kids? You can see some fantastic choices here. Want to arrange a wine tour, plan a shopping excursion or learn the best place to go hiking? See some options for activities here. Whatever you want to do pre or post race, there is something for everyone in Penticton.

Follow along with all of the action on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram under the handle @ITUMultisport. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #Penticton2017. See you in three months!
