The Winterlude triathlon is a skate-ski-run triathlon held on the Rideau Canal, the world’s largest skating rink. It’s part of Ottawa’s Winterlude, a celebration of Canada’s unique northern climate and culture. It is also the first event required to win a Rudy a triathlon award unique to Ottawa. It’s an 8k skate followed by an 8k ski and a 5k run.
Bushtukah has been a sponsor for many years. Mother nature often plays a role in this event. We have had years when it was really cold and years when it was not cold enough. Lucky for us all, long time race director Rick Hellard rolls with the weather and always makes it happen. This year we skied and ran at Moonies Bay.
The 2017 edition of the event will be held on February 4th. Details can be found here.
