Our Story

Running on the IRONMAN 70.3 Muskoka course

We Are Triathlon Country

Founded in 2010 by Rich Trenholm and Kyra Watters, TriMuskoka was established as an advocacy group for endurance athletes and endurance sport tourism in Huntsville and Lake of Bays, Muskoka. TriMuskoka is a volunteer not for profit organization that is passionate about endurance sport training and racing in Muskoka. Our slogan “Naturally Tough” says it all. Training on our challenging terrain will make you a tougher athlete, and prepare you to take on any race course in the world. Just ask Mirinda Carfrae and Craig Alexander who uses Muskoka 70.3 as their tune up race before Kona. Every year they competed at and won the 70.3, they went on to win Kona.

We Share Your Passion

Since our inception, TriMuskoka has worked diligently to ensure that our area hosts the greatest array of endurance sporting events.  Muskoka plays host to a wide variety of endurance sporting events that range from kids triathlons to IRONMAN events, from trail running races to half marathons, and from cycling time trials to OCA cycling championships.  All of these events occur both on the roads, as well as nestled in the forests that give Muskoka its natural beauty. The pristine lakes, fabulous terrain, stunning landscapes and our unparalleled endurance sports history brings professional triathletes and age groupers from around the world to train and race in Muskoka.

 TriMuskoka is committed to athlete development and support for both local and visiting athletes. Every weekend during race season can be filled with something to do. TriMuskoka wants to help you in every way to make your visit as enjoyable and effortless as possible.

We Are A Triathlon Club

TriMuskoka is also a very active triathlon club.  The club, its executives and coaches are very committed to supporting athlete development regardless of experience level, for local and visiting athletes alike. Our priority is to ensure that every club member achieves his or her goals. We provide sport specific education and leading edge training for all levels of athletes. From OAT sanctioned workouts, seminars, training camps and social events our club is there for you every stroke, pedal and step of the way!

We Are Your Host

In addition to club responsibilities, TriMuskoka acts as a liaison for visiting athletes and race directors. We provide assistance with finding places to stay, eat, and train.  We also will work with clubs and clinics to plan out their triathlon camps.  TriMuskoka works closely with the Huntsville business community, other local sports clubs, volunteer groups and residents, to successfully host races and support endurance training.

Our vision is to provide athletes, spectators, volunteers, and community members with a Canadian sporting experience that is unique to what Muskoka has to offer with its beautiful landscape, challenging terrain, and welcoming community members.

We strive to work with community partners and political bodies to provide a safe training and racing environment, while providing spectators and supporters an engaging community and family experience.
