RACE WEEKEND INFO

Race Kit Pickup is at the Port Sydney Community Hall.  You can pick up your kit on Friday July 14th between 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. or Saturday July 15th 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.

Free Bike Checks will be provided at the Community Hall Friday night. The bike check is optional but is beneficial to make sure your bike is in good working order.  There will not be bike checks available Saturday morning.

We will be hosting a Pre-race Seminar on Friday July 14th 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.

2017 CHARITY

Girlz Unplugged LogoWe are very excited to announce that this year’s Muskoka Kids Tri will be raising money for GIRLZ UNPLUGGED.  Girlz Unplugged has helped over 2000 girls in Muskoka develop self-esteem and confidence while exploring healthy relationships, body images, gender stereotypes and the importance of being media savvy in a changing world.

Here are a just few stories from Girlz Unplugged participants:

Before Girlz Unplugged I used to look in the mirror and see an ugly, dumb and messed up face. I saw my flaws and only that. Now when I see myself, I see myself as beautiful, smart and creative”
– Girlz Unplugged participant

Rowan gained so much confidence about herself, was surrounded by like-minded girls and she felt so love and respected. It’s a phenomenal program and I am so happy that she can be a part of it. All young girls should participate in a program like Girlz Unplugged, it is amazing the influence it has.”
– Parent of Girlz Unplugged participant

Girlz Unplugged needs help with funding to keep the program running. You can donate to this amazing program on your registration page. Donations will receive charitable receipts.

Girlz Unplugged is one of the longest running girls-centred programs running in Canada. For over 18 years, YWCA Muskoka has developed and delivered this self-esteem and confidence skill building program for girls in grade 5-8 across the rural region of Muskoka. Girls meet weekly with a YWCA facilitator to explore healthy relationships, self-care, body image, gender stereotypes, being media and internet savvy, through crafts, role play, discussions, laughs and fun. The goals of the program are to increase connection to oneself, others and community; develop confidence; develop critical thinking; understanding healthy relationships & building positive peer support.

School based Girlz Unplugged programs are funded each year through several sources and the fundraising efforts of YWCA staff and volunteers: these include participant fees, individual donations, special events, service clubs, and foundations.
