19TH ANNUAL C3 BENSON STEEL - ROYAL CONTAINERS KIDS & ADULT POOL TRIATHLON MAY 26TH

Join Olympic Coach Barrie Shepley & C3 Volunteers & High-Performance Team for the 19th Annual Caledon Benson Steel - Royal Containers C3 KIDS and Adult Pool Triathlon on Sunday, May 26th at the Mayfield Swim Complex. When former Olympic coach Barrie Shepley returned from the Sydney Olympics 19 years ago, the C3 organization decided to start youth triathlon to honour Simon Whitfield’s gold medal performance. Over the years near 15,000 boys and girls of all ages have crossed the finishing line in Caledon and received the same medal Simon got in his first race 30+ years ago. A decade ago, C3 added in the very popular Adult Pool Division. New in 2019, will be a prize money pro race where Canada’s top elite and development athletes will do two draft legal races. The morning qualifier gets the best dozen athletes into the afternoon prize money final. This is a first for a youth triathlon in Canada. Family members will get a chance to see Canada’s top athletes racing in the Olympic draft-legal format. 

Registration is now open

Adults will go 400m swim - 15km bike and a new shorter 3km run. The adult waves go first thing in the morning and help the C3 volunteers ensure the course and details are perfect for the younger kids that go later in the day. The entire event is a big family day and we encourage you to bring your entire family out and participate in some fashion.

Estimated start times. Organizers will send out a newsletter 2 days before the race fine-tuning wave start times based on the number of total participants in each category. Times noted above are a rough estimate of times. Note that participants should arrive roughly 1hr before their races begin to give time to pick up race kit, body mark and be ready for your swim wave

COURSE DETAILS

Swim: The entire swim is in a warm-new 25m x six-lane swimming pool at Mayfield. Waves will have 2-3 participants per lane and there will be lap counters.

Bike: The bike is a 3km, flat road that is 100% closed to traffic. Athletes will do 1-5 loops of the 3km bike loop to do your proper bike race distance. The only exception is the 7 & under timed will do half a loop on the road for 1.5km and the 3-6-year-old non-timed kids will stay 100% on the parking lot of the race venue. Helmets and working bikes are required for all participants.

Run: The run is a 1km loop on the grass and on the 400m track at the venue. Each lap athletes will come back near the finishing line before heading out again. The only exceptions are the 7 & under timed who will do a smaller run loop to accomplish a 500m run distance and the 3-6 year-olds will run from their bikes directly to the finishing line (i.e.. 200m).
