Join 2012 Olympian and former C3 Alumni Kyle Jones as the official host along with Barrie Shepley for the 2023 event at the Mayfield Swim Complex. The Caledon event is one of the oldest in Canada and has helped springboard the careers of numerous Olympians but the focus of the May 28th race is to allow the entire family to compete (3-year-olds to 80 years olds). In addition to the draft legal races for the 14-15-year-olds and 16+ elites and juicers, will be the 12-13-year-olds Ontario Cup Race. C3 also has the very popular Adult Pool Division. In 2023, C3 will have a prize money race for the draft legal 16-19 and young pro division. The highlight of the pool swim triathlon is always the 3-6-year-olds (who can be assisted by their parents).

C3 teammates are hosting the 2022 C3 Patricia Lopez Memorial Event. Patricia’s car was hit by a truck in Aug of 2020 on the way to a club workout. Patricia had used sport and exercise to alter her body and mind through training with her C3 teammates. Patricia did her first full Ironman in Sept 2019 in Italy. She and her teammates were training for the 2020 Ironman Arizona race when she was killed. Her teammates and her husband Luis Lopez want to keep Patricia’s incredible spirit alive and to help other women use sport as a positive force in their lives. All proceeds to the Patricia Lopez bursary to help women in sports.
