Organizers take great pride in providing top-notch value for hard-earned money, with a major focus on addressing all of the small details required to run a safe and smoothly-organized weekend of triathlon, says long-time race director Charlie Cooper.

The Triathlon has grown into a real family event, and once again Saturday will feature the Tri-kids race and Sunday the solo races.

Race announcing will once again be provided by the legendary “voice of triathlon” Steve King, and camping at Wasa Park, Norbury Park and private campgrounds in the surrounding region is available, as well as choices of accommodation and restaurants in Cranbrook and Kimberley.

Each athlete receives a souvenir shirt, post-race recovery food and lunch, personalized race bib, swim cap, accurate chip timing and a goodie bag. $4,300 cash prizing for the top elite racers of the Standard triathlon. Clubs can also enter the Triathlon Club Challenge.

Athletes receive comprehensive support with the assistance of hundreds of volunteers, four run course water stations, qualified lifeguards and first aid crew in the transition area.
