Sprint AquaBike

We know sometimes the running legs aren’t there, so this year the Bluewater Triathlon is pleased to announce the Sprint AquaBike.

The Sprint AquaBike features a 400 meter swim and an 18 km bike.

It is open to solo athletes only.  

The swim is parallel shore swim in the clean waters of Lake Huron. Due to increasing poulariy of the Sprint Triathon we will be having wave starts to decrease congestion on the swim course. The water temperatures in past years have averaged 21C, wetsuits have been allowed in past years. The swim will be cancelled if the lake is rough making it unsafe for the athletes or volunteers. 

The bike is a very fast flat paved 18 km out and back course though the low traffic roads of Lambton County. There will be a lead pace car, a trail vehicle and a roving SAG wagon to supply technical assistance. The course is well marked with volunteers at each intersection and turn.

We will be using computer chip timing.

All athletes receive a unique themed Technical T shirt as part of the registration, as well as access to the famed post race feast.
