The Kamloops Triathlon Club is excited to present the 2021 Kamloops Youth Triathlon on August 22, 2021 at the Brock Pool and Field.
After a year of limited events, it is time to get back to racing! In partnership with Triathlon BC, this race will include the 2021 BC Junior U23 Championships and host part of the Canadian Tire Jumpstart program.
This is a great opportunity to get out and have some fun whether you are new to the sport or a seasoned triathlete.
We are incredibly grateful that we are among several organizations to be providing avenues for participation for young athletes with support from Triathlon BC and the Canadian Tire Corporation.
“With so much uncertainty over the past 16 months, it’s fantastic to see the Kamloops Triathlon Club host this event,” said Kelly Guest, Provincial Coach. “We hope to see this event grow and become a fixture on BC’s performance pathway SuperSeries circuit.”
“The Kamloops Triathlon Club has a twenty-year history of running youth triathlons in our community,” exclaimed Patrick Waters, Race Director. “We are excited to host an event for youth to try-a-tri and have opportunities for high performance racing. We look forward, once again, to welcoming more athletes and spectators to the Tournament Capital of Canada”
Through the Canadian Tire Jumpstart program, community sport organizations like ours continue to provide access to sport and play for Canadian kids. The Canadian Tire JumpStart program will go a long way towards helping us build Canada’s next champions. #SportReliefFund
