"This Isn't My First TriDu"

Do you have your first triathlon under your belt? Or have been participating in races for as long as you can remember? Either way, here’s why your next challenge should be the 2019 UBC Triathlon… and if you raced last year, here’s why you should race again!

  • The swimming portion takes place inside UBC’s Aquatic Centre, with a modern and easy-to-navigate layout. The biking and running portions are both completed on the beautiful campus, offering spectacular views and structured routes for race-time enjoyment. The entire route is composed of closed roads, for both your safety and comfort.


  • Whether you come from near or far, the campus has endless travel routes available for your convenience. Transit options are easily accessible from just about anywhere in the Lower Mainland, with only a quick walk to the starting line from the bus loops. There are many parking spots available, including a parkade located only minutes from the TriDu event.


  • From the very start of your race to the finish line, the event is organized to ensure that your experience is everything you want it to be. With friendly volunteers, professional race timing, a carefully-drawn and closed-circuit route, post-race photography and sports therapy, as well as a variety of recovery snacks, every aspect of the race experience has been thoughtfully and precisely planned.


  • Regardless of whether you’ve run TriDu before, there’s something new to be gained from each time racing. Whether you’re trying to beat your own record, just want an excuse to run along the beautiful Marine Drive, LIVE for the competition, or just want to start your year with a personal challenge… you won’t want to miss starting your 2019 with UBC’s TriDu.


  • There’s a reason why the event is BC’s longest running triathlon, and it’s the ideal way to start a new race year. With more than three months to go, there’s plenty of time to prepare for TriDu 2019. Head over to ubcrectridu.ca and then to the Registration Table to claim your spot!
