Super League Triathlon Penticton is proud to unveil their plans for Juniors 16 to 19 year old as of Dec 31st, 2018.
Built for Juniors
It seems only fitting that this fast and exciting event be attended by the Junior athletes, they’re built for a race like this. No longer sidelined to a separate event or day, Juniors will enjoy the same prime time race atmosphere as everyone else and will be racing a much similar format on the same days as the older age group athletes and pros. A Equalizer Part 1 bike time trial on Friday at Area 27 and the Equalizer Part 2 (swim / run / swim / bike / run) on Saturday.
Format Change for Sunday
Sunday’s race is where things get changed up a little. Due to the distance restrictions on Juniors racing back to back events, the format for Sunday’s Enduro Race will be a straight up Sprint Distance race, whereas the older Agr Group athletes will complete 2 x Sprint Distance races back to back. For Juniors this simply means a 750m swim, 20km bike and 5km run on Sunday. However, they will be racing the same course, same day and same time as the older age groupers; they will just ‘Finish’ after their first swim/bike/run.
Early Bird Discount
Juniors entering Super League Triathlon Penticton prior to February 10th will also receive a 10% Early Bird Discount. After that date, pricing is tiered; with a fixed number of entries available at each price point.
We’re excited to offer Junior athletes this opportunity to race in a format that will surely be a highlight of their race calendar. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
