Sign up early for Wasa Triathlon and your name will be thrown in the hat for a chance to win an Aqua Sphere Pursuit wetsuit. The winner will be announced on Sept. 1 at www.facebook.com/WasaTriathlon.
The triathlon takes place yearly at Wasa Lake and consists of swimming, biking and running.
The swim is a one clockwise rectangular loop starting from the Horseshoe Bay beach. Wetsuits are allowed. The cycling leg is mostly flat with some rolling hills. It starts with a clockwise loop going three quarters of the way around Wasa Lake and then spins cyclists around to follow the Canadian Rockies and the Kootenay River heading south towards the Heritage Town of Fort Steele. The return portion takes cyclists directly back to the transition area via the south park entry/exit. The event wraps up with two flat out-and-back run segments, with a cruise by the transition zone in between.
