About Winter Triathlons

Born in 1989 to race a "little different than the ordinary," the Winter Triathlon brings together three common winter pursuits: running, skating, and skiing.

The race began as a “sprint” 5-5-5 km format with a skate and ending with a ski. In 2007, the race changed to the longer and more challenging distance of 10-10-5 km, skate-ski-run. In 2012, we hosted two different distances: 10-10-5 km and 4-4-2 km. The current format started 2015.

Winter triathlon combines three disciplines of either cross-country skiing, running, biking, skating, or snowshoeing. Canada boasts two of the longest running winter triathlons, in Edmonton and Ottawa. Meanwhile, Quebec hosts one of the biggest events on the Plains of Abraham.
