BEAT THE COLD
SO THOSE IN NEED CAN, TOO
FEB. 1 - 14, 2022
BEAT THE COLD 2022
Beat the Cold is an annual triathlon hosted by 1JustCity and TriFactor where weekend warriors, super athletes and fun-letes will run, bike, skate, sled, ski, etc! in the frigid February weather.
For the last three years, the wildest Winnipeggers have beaten the cold so others don’t have to.
This year, from February 1-14, 2022, they’ll do it again!
UPDATE: Beat the Cold 2022 has been moved to a fully virtual event. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions regarding your registration, volunteering, or sponsorships.
The In-Person Race (February 12, 2022) - CANCELLED
The Virtual Race (February 1 - 14, 2022)
For our virtual race, you can create your own course with your choice of sports and location, or you can race our original triathlon by running, skating, and biking for a minimum of 5km each.
If you choose to Challenge Your Course, choose at least two winter sports you love. You can skate, ski, snowshoe, toboggan, or even roll a snowball uphill. It’s up to you, so get creative with it! Just make sure your race has three distinct legs. There's no minimum distance!
If you choose to Challenge the Course by doing our traditional triathlon route, try to beat your time from last year! We’ll provide this year’s race route for you to follow.
To track your race and be entered to win a daily prize, use the Strava app (or any other GPS app) and submit your race legs using the Beat the Cold Race Submission Form. Entries must be submitted by 6:00 p.m. the day you race to be counted. Otherwise, they’ll carry over and be drawn with the next day’s entries.
