With Ironman Canada returning to Penticton, we're seeing a resurgence in the excitement we've always felt about Ironman. People are returning to the sport after a long hiatus and new participants are signing up - or at least they try to sign up! Registration protocols have changed in the past few years: tiered registration releases spots to preferred groups like clubs before general registration opens up. You can gain an early entry spot by being a member of a recognized club so we're making it easy for you. Here's how:
As a recognized Tri Club, our members get access to an early registration tier and the bigger our club, the earlier you can enter. So, the solution is easy - join the YEG Tri Club list! It's free and, as soon as you add your name to the list, we'll give you a discount coupon for a signature piece from the YEG Tri Collection.
YEG Tri Collection is available to anyone but YEG Tri Club members get it a preferred price. When the world comes to race in Edmonton and when we go to race elsewhere, YEG Tri Gear can be a symbol of that the triathlon spirit is alive and strong in our community. We invite you to try YEG Tri Gear and help us show our city to the world.
At The Races
It will be so easy to identify fellow teammates in their YEG Tri gear. It's always nice to see a friendly face when you are away from home, at a race, on the road.
We hope that YEG Tri Club can do more than help you register for an event. We hope it can bring us together and help us show pride in our city. Edmonton has a lot to offer both as a home and a training destination:
- Running trails in our river valley and beyond make Edmonton one of the best cities in Canada for run training.
- The North Saskatchewan River is an exciting and very viable open water swim venue and it doesn't cost a thing to use.
- Are you doing any hill repeat training for a bike or run? It's easy to find lots of challenging options.
- Miles of range roads just outside the city allow long rides in lower-traffic conditions.
Here's a bit more info on our current group training schedule.
We invite and encourage anyone to ride with us through the winter. Going forward, these will continue on Zoom.
The best way to keep updated on training sessions is to register with the YEG Tri Club email list. It's just that easy and it's free. Here's the link to copy & paste into your browser to sign up:
