Welcome to the Subaru Shawnigan Lake Triathlon!
Canada's first outdoor triathlon festival of the year provides a "Beautiful B.C." experience at Shawnigan Lake, just a short 30 minute drive from Victoria. Run on the breathtaking Trans Canada trail to the newly rebuilt historic Kinsol Trestle, with no pavement pounding your legs! A true West Coast experience in one of the most beautiful areas of the world - the Wildflower of the North. Like Wildflower, the famous early season California triathlon festival, the Shawnigan event features: the first chance to swim an open water triathlon in a stunning scenic venue, beautiful trail running, great camping near the race site and a fun festival atmosphere. The event also includes the energy of the Western High School Championships open to all middle and high school students. Try out a new event this year – the “Trestle Challenge” where participants will swim 1.5km, bike 45km, and run a half marathon to the Trestle and back! The weekend activities also include a Saturday festival in Shawnigan Lake Village with live entertainment, food sampling, demonstrations, clinics, sponsor and local business expo booths, and concessions.
