FEB. 1 - 12, 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.


The Event


For the last three years, the wildest Winnipeggers have beaten the cold so others don’t have to.


This year, from February 1-12, 2022, they’ll do it again!

We received lots of great feedback last year saying how much you LOVED our virtual race. For 2022, we've decided to combine the virtual race idea with our in-person triathlon so that no matter where you are or what your comfort level is, there's a way for almost anyone to participate.

The In-Person Race (February 12, 2022)


The in-person triathlon is back! Held on the River Trail at The Forks, racers will run, bike, and skate for 5km each.


The Virtual Race (February 1 - 12, 2022)


For our virtual race, you can create your own course with your choice of sports and location!

Whichever route you decide to take, your course must have 3 distinct legs. There is no minimum distance.


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!

To track your race and be entered to win a daily prize, use the Strava app (or any other GPS app) and send screenshots of your completed race to 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. 


In the email, please include a picture of yourself and your activities, plus a blurb about why you decided to beat the cold this year. Unless stated otherwise, your post may be used to promote the race on social media.








The Cause


100% of the Beat The Cold profits will go toward Just a Warm Sleep, 1JustCity’s overnight emergency warming centre in our newly-renovated Oak Table space.


On nights below -10 C from December through March, Just a Warm Sleep invites up to 30 people experiencing homelessness into its outreach site at 107 Pulford Street to get a safe, warm sleep.
