New for 2016. The HPR Youth Triathlon at West Shore, Victoria Youth Triathlon and the Triathlon of Compassion will make up the Greater Victoria Youth Triathlon Series. Participants gain points towards an over-all series total. There are awards for everyone who completes all three races in the series, and awards for top series finishers in each of the 10-11, 12-13, and 14-17 age groups.
Race 1 – HPR Youth Triathlon at West Shore – Sunday, May 20th
The HPR Youth Triathlon West Shore is the newest youth triathlon on Vancouver Island. The course is centered around The Juan de Fuca Rec Centre in Colwood. The 2015 event was very well received by both parents and athletes. Celebrate the May long weekend by staying close to home and participating in this great new race.
Race 2 – Victoria Youth Triathlon – Sunday, June 5th
The Victoria Youth Triathlon is Victoria’s premier youth triathlon and takes place at the University of Victoria. The 2014 and 2015 Victoria Youth Triathlon sold out so register early to avoid disappointment. The race features the “school challenge” recognizing the school with the most participants in the race.
Race 3 – Triathlon of Compassion – Sunday, June 26th
The Triathlon of Compassion is a fundraiser for the Victoria Women’s Sexual Assault Centre. The race is a fixture at the Esquimalt Rec Centre. The kids of steel distances at this race will make up the final event of the new Greater Victoria Youth Series.
