Race Info

2.5K run, 5K bike, 3.75K run

The second annual Beat The Cold Winter Triathlon will feature a 2.75k run, 5k bike, and 3.75k run on Saturday, Feb. 8 at The Forks.  NOTE: These are updated shorter run distances as the City of Winnipeg informed us they will not be able to clear an unsafe section of our route in time for race day, as they had expected they would be able to. 

Race kit pick-up

Thursday, Feb. 6 from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.

South atrium in The Forks Market in front of Danny's All-Day Breakfast

Note: There will also be race kit pick-up and registration on Saturday, Feb. 8 (race day) from 7:00 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. but we encourage you to come to the early race kit pick-up to avoid the busyness of race day. Plus, there's giveaways at Thursday's race kit pick-up!

Note: These are the updated course maps. Slightly shorter distances as The City of Winnipeg has informed us they won't be able to clear an section of our run routes in time for race day, as they had expected they would be able to. For the last run course, follow the signage and volunteers and you'll be golden :)
