Triathlon moves to new date

The Eliminator Triathlon Oak Bay will take place July 19 at Willows Beach

The Eliminator Triathlon Oak Bay has a new date. The 2015 race will take place on Sunday, July 19 at the same location as last year, Willows Beach.

The race is made up of a series of heats, over a very short course, where athletes compete multiple times in succession. The top finishers in each heat move on until a final heat for each gender determines the race winners. Every competitor is guaranteed at least two races in this format.

Each heat consists of 20 to 25 athletes completing a 200-metre swim, five-kilometre bike ride and 1K run. The top 10 athletes from each heat move on to semifinals and then finals, with the remainder of competitors from the first heats moving on to consolation races.

There will be one open race category for all athletes age 13 and older divided by gender.

Watch for registration to open soon at eliminatortri.ca online.
