August 9th will mark the 3rd annual Metchosin Triathlon. This great grass roots event is perfect for both the first time triathlete and the experienced racer. The 750m swim course is comprised of one lap in the clear, warm waters of Matheson Lake, followed by a 20km out and back bike ride through the winding, rolling countryside of Metchosin and East Sooke. Once off the bike, athletes finish with a flat and fast 5km along the Goose Regional Trail.
This years race will have a Club Championship division. Points will be awarded to the top three finishers in each age group plus one point for each participant. The club with the most points at the end of the race will be declared the Vancouver Island Club Champion! The winning triathlon club will receive a wall plaque recognizing their achievement plus they will have their club name entered on a perpetual trophy that will be awarded for the first time in 2015. AND, the winning club will also be the winners of a cold keg of beer for their year end party!!!
