Which races to consider in 2011?

2011 is almost here! As we head into the new year, most races have started accepting registrations for their 2011 events. One of the challenges I have faced is to find out which ones to sign up for. Triathlon is fast growing and new races are popping up everywhere, which makes it hard to keep up. Here are some of our favourite tips on how to find new races for 2011, in order of increased effectiveness:

  1. Check out registration websites for upcoming events in your area. The main ones in Canada are,,
  2. Browse your provincial association's website and check out their race calendar section. Example: TriBC Race Calendar, TriNL, TriathlonQuebec etc.
  3. Our #1 Tip: Only a handful of companies are contracted to time races across Canada. We recommend checking out their website for races they have handled in the past. The main ones are:
                  RaceHeadquarters (Western Canada)
                  ResultsCanada (Western Canada)
                  SportStats (QC, ON)
                  AtlanticChip (Maritimes and NL)

    We recommend registering early to take advantage of Early Bird pricing many of these events offer and wish you a successful racing season for 2011!
