Choice of 2 ways to complete your distance (all at once or complete each discipline separately when you can)
How the Virtual Event Works:
1. Register Now!
Register HERE for the Virtual Event and select your distance/event that you want to complete.
During the registration process you have 2 different options of how you would like to complete your Virtual Event! There will be a separate Results Page race listing for each of these options/categories:
Option 1: VIRTUAL CLASSIC - This is a continuous event where you complete all of the disciplines (and transitions) at one time - like a traditional triathlon/multi-sport event.
Option 2: VIRTUAL CHALLENGE - This is where you can complete the individual sport disciplines at different times. You can complete each discipline at any time during the Virtual Event Window (the designated time period / dates to complete the event). You can also complete the disciplines in any order that you choose (does not need to follow the traditional order of a multisport event). For example, you could complete the bike distance on the first weekend, the run distance a week later and swim a week after that - as long as it is completed within the Virtual Event window. Transition times are not required for the Virtual Challenge events.
Already Registered? Great!
Plan for how you want to complete your Virtual Event as per above (Virtual Classic – complete your event continuously all at once, or Virtual Challenge – complete each sport separately). You can complete your event at anytime between the virtual window of May 28th and July 31st, 2022.
2. Train for your goal Event!
3. What you will need to record your Virtual Event
Triathlon Membership / Day of Race Insurance -
A reminder that when you start your Virtual Event you must have a current Tri-BC, ATA or Sask Tri Membership OR have purchased the Triathlon BC Day of Race Insurance (at time of registration). If you do not have this you will not be eligible to participate and will not be officially included in the event. If you do not have one of these current memberships, you can purchase Day of Race Insurance HERE.
Tracking your Virtual Event -
Before you start your Virtual Event, it is best to have a GPS watch/tracking device. If you have a GPS tracking device or software (i.e. Garmin, FitBit, Apple Watch, smart phone, etc.), simply record your virtual event and save it. Uploading your results is very simple and directions on this can be found in the “HOW TO SUBMIT A VIRTUAL RESULT” section below. Don’t forget to charge your device before you start! If you do not have a GPS tracking device…try to borrow one from a friend, or maybe it is time for an early Christmas present! Can’t find a GPS tracking device? No problem - email us at email@example.com for other solutions.
4. Download Your Race Bib
We have created an Official Souvenir Race Bib for your Virtual Event! It is optional for you to wear the bib but it is a lot fun and great for the pictures (those wearing bibs will get extra chances to win prizes!). We recommend you download the bib and place it in a waterproof sleeve. The downloadable race bib is available HERE.
5. Social Media / Photo Contest
Take pictures of your experience! Coordinate with friends and family to take some great pics of you in action! Submit these pictures to win some amazing prizes! Each Virtual Participant can submit up to 3 pictures (each picture will be entered in the draw).
We love seeing pictures of you and where you are completing your Virtual Event – local landmarks, signs, beautiful backdrops, you getting ready for your race, you in action, family and friends cheering, you crossing the Finish Line! This is where you can submit your photos:
