For the past 25 years, the Muskoka region, per capita, hosts the most number of triathlons each summer compared to anywhere else in North America. Why? Clean and quiet lakes, rolling hills cut right out of the Canadian Shield, and roads that wind through forests allow you to lose yourself all the while participating in a sport that you love.

Gravenhurst Duathlon and Triathlon
Date: July 15th and 16th, 2017
This very popular triathlon usually sells out every year as there are limited spaces on the historic SS Wehnona and SS Seguin steamships that take swimmers out to the start line.
The race consists of a straight in swim to the Gravenhurst dock in Lake Muskoka, then a undulating bike course through the beautiful cottage roads in the area, and is capped off by a great out and back run.
This is a local favorite, and often sells out by June.
