SATURDAY, JULY 20 – PORT SYDNEY, ONTARIO REGISTER HERE

WEATHER UPDATE – 8AM Saturday July 20  

The Muskoka Kids Tri will be proceeding according to the originally planned schedule. We are monitoring the forecast and weather closely.

We have established a mustering location at the Port Sydney Community Hall (packet pickup location) at 607 Muskoka Road 10. Should you observe lightning or thunder, or are asked to do so by a volunteer, we ask that you proceed immediately to the mustering location and await further instructions.

A reminder that it is VERY hot today. Please make sure that you take that into account during your race.

As you are probably aware, the weather forecast for tomorrow indicates a probability of thunderstorms in the area. We are monitoring the forecast and weather closely.

By 8am Saturday (tomorrow) morning, we will make a decision as to whether we will proceed with the event following the originally planned schedule, or proceed with a delayed start or if we must cancel the event for safety reasons. You will be contacted via email and a notice will be posted to the website. Participants should be prepared for potential rain, hot and humid conditions.

We ask for your patience and understanding should we need to modify the schedule or potentially cancel the event. Your safety is our highest priority and thunderstorms pose a significant risk to your safety.

Unfortunately due to the logistics involved, there is not a rain date.

Let’s all hope that the weather is favourable tomorrow morning!

All the best,

Justine, Melissa and Rob

RACE WEEKEND INFO

Race Kit Pickup is at the Port Sydney Community Hall.  You can pick up your kit on Friday July 19th between 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. or Saturday July 20th 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 19th 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.

2019 CHARITY

We are excited to announce that the Muskoka Kids Tri is supporting the Muskoka Children’s Foundation in 2019.

Please consider supporting their mission with a donation.

Muskoka Children’s Foundation Mission:

To focus community resources for the enrichment of the lives of Muskoka children.

The Children’s Foundation of Muskoka is an independent, non-profit organization formed in 1989 by volunteers in Muskoka. CFM raises funds in our local community, in partnership with individuals, businesses, and service organizations. We are also a community partner with Canadian Tire’s Jump Start Program.

Through our community partnerships, we are able to help children and families in practical ways when no other help is available. We provide funds to meet the recreational, cultural, medical, and emotional needs of the children we serve. Our grants provide children in Muskoka the opportunities to grow and develop.
