Triathlon is an endurance sport where athletes swim, bike, and run. The clock starts as soon as you jump in the water, and ends when you run across the finish line. Moving between sports is part of what makes triathlon unique, and fast transition times are crucial for a fast race! Whether you're an experienced athlete or participating in your first triathlon, WTS Edmonton offers a closed course and a welcoming environment. Where else are you able to compete on the same course as the best triathletes in the world?

HOW TO QUALIFY 

Interested athletes must be Triathlon Alberta members or members of their home Provincial Governing Bodies if not from Alberta, PRIOR to competition. Results are adjusted to determine appropriate five year age categories based on competitor’s ages as of December 31, 2020. The age adjusted results will be used to determine the automatic qualified athletes, who will be notified by Triathlon Canada directly.

Triathlon Canada is offering an opportunity to claim an unclaimed spot for those athletes who do not automatically qualify based on the age adjusted results. Athletes will need to submit an online Expression of Interest for the event they wish to claim a roll down spot in PRIOR to the event race date. Athletes will be charged $20 to submit an their “EOI” which will be treated as a deposit for those who are successful in obtaining a spot and will be deducted from their Team Management Fee as part of their official confirmation to the team. The $20 fee will be non-refundable for athletes who are unsuccessful in obtaining a spot. However, it may be applied to a charity entry instead. Successful athletes will be notified by Triathlon Canada directly.

These new fees are not part of World Triathlon Series Edmonton registration but are introduced by Triathlon Canada. Please contact them for further questions - https://www.triathloncanada.com/connect/
