THE VICTORIA HALF AND SPRINT TRIATHON
The Victoria Half is one of Canada’s most classic and beautiful triathlon events. For over 25 years, athletes have been making the trek to picturesque Vancouver Island for this incredible west coast race experience. The course features a calm one-loop lake swim at Elk Lake followed by a ride through the scenic Saanich Peninsula and a 2-loop run on the flat soft lake trails of Elk and Beaver Lakes. The event has a rich tradition attracting the world’s best triathletes along with many first-timers while also serving as National Championships, Qualifiers and Ironman 70.3. The event is also famous for its commemorative “hoodie” that the participants proudly sport from year to year.
