IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Hello and thanks for supporting the Muskoka Kids Try in 2020.

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 social distancing policies and the risks inherent with an endurance event with hundreds of participants, we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 edition of the Muskoka Kids Tri.

We understand this is a disappointment for you, your children and your families who were looking forward to the 26th year of the event in beautiful Port Sydney. We’re so disappointed too! However, I’m sure you can understand the risks of hosting an event of this nature during this uncertain period. This event is dear to our hearts, and we want to see it continue in 2021 and beyond.

As such we would like to offer you the following three options to convert your 2020 registrations to ensure it’s able to proceed in future years:

A) Donate your registration to our charity partner, One Kids Place
B) Defer your registration for free to the 2021 Muskoka Kids Tri (July 17th, 2021)
C) Refund of your registration less a $20 admin fee and original processing fee **

** For those who purchased the extended refund policy during their registration, we are offering a full refund less original processing fee.

Once you have decided on the right option for you, please follow these steps before June 28th, 2020: 

  • Sign into your Race Roster account here
  • Click “Edit registration” in the right corner of the screen
  • Choose from the options under the question “How would you like to convert your registration?”
  • Click ‘save & exit’

Please make your choice of how you would like to convert your registration by Sunday June 28, 2020 so that we can process your request in a timely manner.

We hope to see you in 2021 healthy and excited to be part of this Muskoka tradition.

RACE WEEKEND INFO

Race Kit Pickup is at the Port Sydney Community Hall.  You can pick up your kit on Friday July 17th between 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. or Saturday July 18th between 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m.  All kits must be picked up at the hall by 9:00 a.m. Saturday.

The hall is located at 607 Port Sydney Road in Port Sydney.  Take exit 207 (Highway 141/Muskoka Road 10) from Highway 11, head east and follow the road around to just past the main beach.

We will be hosting a Pre-race Seminar on Friday July 17th at 7:00 p.m at the beach. This seminar is optional but can be very helpful for first time “tri-ers”. We will review the course layout, the transition area, and offer tips for race day.

Parking on Saturday is also at the Community Hall. You can stop briefly to drop your bikes etc. off by the transition area at the main beach then drive to the community hall.

Volunteers will be on hand to direct you. Parking is not allowed on the race course roads.

Dogs are not allowed in the beach area. Please make arrangements to leave your furry friends safely at home.

Life Jackets are permitted for children in the swim portion of the event. The smallest age groups run through the water and are not in over their heads.
