Do North Triathlon & Americas Cup

Do North Triathlon

Join us in a new venue and swim course for 2023! This year, the swim course will take place in the majestic North Saskatchewan River. Featuring a down river swim, racers will enter the water from a pontoon just west of the High Level Bridge. After an approximately 800m swim, racers will exit the water under the Walterdale Bridge to head to transition in Queen Elizabeth Park. The bike course will take racers through Edmonton's river valley with some hill climbs to add some technical elements. After returning back to transition across the Walterdale Bridge, racers will head out on a rolling run course alongside the North Saskatchewan River.

The Do North Triathlon is a sprint race open to any participant aged 16 years of age or older (as of Dec. 31, 2023). There is no qualification other than racers need to have a Provincial Triathlon License or purchase a day license (link below). The race is only open to 250 participants! Register now!

The first 50 participants pay $99.

These athletes are racing under the Pan-American Triathlon Confederation (PATCO) under World Triathlon rules and event formats. This fast-paced draft legal event sets these athletes up for a future path to World Championships and the Olympic pathway. Interested athletes should reach out to their National Federations to register in this event.
