This is going to be super wicked fun!
As a way of inspiring and engaging our local community in physical activity and curing your winter blahs, TriMuskoka will be hosting the 1st annual Winter Indoor Triathlon Classic that promises to be as much fun as it will be challenging for individuals of all abilities.
The three legs of the Winter Classic are short enough that people will be able to complete the race and be just long enough that participants will be proud of their accomplishments.
Think of this event as that much needed mid-winter carrot to keep yourself active over the course of the winter, so that when spring rolls around, you are rip roaring ready to go for what activities lie ahead of you.
Similar to our TriMuskokan Short Course Triathlon and Try-a-Tri, the focus is on creating a fun and memorable event experience that makes you wanting to provide participants with a challenge, and will leave them with a tremendous sense of accomplishment when they are done. The TriMuskokan is taking place on June 25th, so if you are training for the winter indoor triathlon, you might as well participate in The TriMuskokan.

What Is The Format of the TriMuskoka Indoor Triathlon Winter Classic
The Winter Indoor Classic will take place on February 12th, 2017 at the Canada Summit Centre. The format is pretty straight forward:
- Swim: A 15 minute swim in a 25m pool (two people per lane)
- Bike: A 15 minute bike on a stationary bike that Motivations Fitness has graciously let us use
- Run: A 15 minute run or walk around the indoor track
- The Scoring System: Race volunteers record the total distance covered during your swim, bike and run. The more distance you cover, the higher your score. The higher your score, the closer you are to the podium!
- Swim: 10 points will be earned for every 25m lap completed, with 5 points being awarded for a half lap determined by the lap counter
- Bike: 25 points earned for each 0.5km completed, as calculated by the bike computers average RPM and converted into total distance.
- Run: 27 points scored for each lap of the track completed (217m indoor track), and 13.5 points for each half lap.
Transition times: Each of the legs will be separated by a 5 minute transition period that will give you time to change (if required) and make your way to the next leg of the event.
After the Winter Classic, light refreshments and a snack will be provided to participants along with their finishers swag!
