Frequently Asked Questions

Will I get a refund if the weather doesn’t cooperate?

ALL ENTRIES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE EVEN IN THE CASE OF BAD WEATHER.

 

There are 10 days to participate. Hopefully, it won't rain for 10 straight days!

 

But, we make every effort to ensure that the weather does not thwart our fun and we’ll stay in touch with you about any curve balls mother nature throws our way.

 

How do I create my own course?

Pick two sports and plan three legs. 

 

Some sport options are (but are not limited to): running, biking, rollerblading, hiking, swimming, walking the dog, etc!

Too warm?

If the weather is incredibly warm and humid, we recommend you take extra precautions when doing your triathlon. Bring extra water, wear a hat and sunscreen, or just stay inside for the day and try again tomorrow!

 

How do I track my time and send it in?

Download a GPS tracker such as Strava, Map My Run, or Garmin. Track each leg that you do and take a screenshot of the leg. 

 

When you're done, please send your screenshots to beattheheat@1justcity.ca before 6:00 p.m. that night. You will be entered into a daily draw, but any entries sent after 6:00 p.m. will be counted for the following day. 

 

When can I start my race? 

Any time you’d like between July 30 and August 10! The beauty of the virtual race is that it’s flexible, and you can start whenever it works for you and your team!

 

How do I get my race kit?

This year we are doing a post-race kit pick up at one location. COVID-19 makes things weird, ok?! 

 

The Pick-up location and date are to be determined. You’ll receive an email about the details closer to. The kit will include your buff and any prizes you’ve accumulated from your awesome fundraising!

​​

Are there age restrictions?

Yes. Participants must be at least 16 years old on race day or accompanied by an adult during the race.

Do I have to wear a helmet?

YES. Please wear a helmet for sports like biking and rollerblading. 

 

Is there an award for the fastest time?

Nope! Take your time and race whenever it works for you.

Does my course have to be at The Forks?

No! Create your course wherever you can safely do so.

 

REMINDER: Please adhere to the provincial COVID-19 guidelines at the time of the event. This year’s race is happening over 10 days with 2 race options to maximize social distancing and keep all of our participants safe.
