Polarthon Revival Winter Triathlon

Time to form your teams and register for the 2018 Polarthon

This is an annual fun event suitable for teams of all ages and skill levels. All you need to do is snowshoe, skate, and cross country ski... oh and crazy costumes are also encouraged.

Welcome to the Polarthon Revival event.  This is a winter triathlon, originally hosted in Logan Lake but moved to Stake Lake this season so the new winter triathlon format of the International Triathlon Union (ITU) can be realized. The winter triathlon today is about where the summer triathlon was in the 1970’s and 80’s.  An idea - but an idea that has caught on fire in some communities - especially Quebec - where this year they are hosting Winter Triathlon World Cups.

The mission statement of the Polarthon is to promote healthy outdoor winter activity that can be enjoyed by the whole family and to introduce young and older to the emerging sport of Winter Triathlon.  

Elite and age groupers can participate in the races that are open to athletes of all levels.

Solo or in a team relay you must complete, one after the other on a continuous basis, the 3 following disciplines:

S3 - snow shoe - skate - ski

Triathlon Basics

Disciplines must be completed one after the other, snow shoe, skate, ski.

After each disciplines, you must enter the transition zone to complete the course, change your equipment and start the next discipline. 

A Triathlon runs without interruption between each disciplines. Transition time is included in the total race time. Timing stops only when you reach the finish line at the end of the third discipline. 

You must provide all the required equipment to complete your Triathlon.
