Capital Subaru St. John’s Triathlon (2020 WQ Event)
August 11 @ 8:00 am
Qualifying event for the 2020 ITU World Triathlon Championships!
This is the 35th anniversary of the Capital Subaru St. John’s Triathlon and we have some big things planned! This year, the Capital Subaru St. John’s Triathlon is a qualifying event for the sprint and standard distances for the 2020 ITU World Triathlon Championships being held in Edmonton Alberta! The male and female winners in each age group for the standard and sprint distances will earn the right to represent Canada at the 2020 event in Edmonton Alberta!
Only athletes who are full annual members of Triathlon NL (or another provincial triathlon association) are eligible to earn a qualifying spot. If an age group winner is not eligible for the qualifying spot, or does not want to use the qualifying spot, the spot will be offered to the next highest placing athlete in the age group who is eligible, the spot will continue to roll down in each age group until it is claimed.
Once once again the event is being held at Rotary Sunshine Park. Race date is Sunday August 11, 2019 and includes a 1.5 km (2 x 750 m loop) swim in Healey’s Pond, a 46 km (2 x 23 km loop) bike around Windsor Lake and finishing off with a 10 km (2 x 5 km loop) run through the beautiful park trails and along Bennett’s Road. We are also planning to have Swim/Bike (Aquabike) as well as a Bike/Run (Duathlon) events but plans are still being worked out on those.
A sprint distance race (half of the Standard distance) is also available and consists of one loop of each discipline.
Relay team events consisting of 2 or 3 team members are also available for the Standard distance event.

TriNL is accepting applications for event sanctioning for the 2019 season.
Event organizers are invited to download our Race Director Handbook to learn about how to hold a multi-sport event, and the requirements associated with sanctioning.
Sanctioning applications are filled out and submitted online. You will also need to submit additional documentation including an Event Emergency Plan; permit applications from applicable municipal, provincial, and federal authorities; and maps of courses and related facilities.
This process offers an excellent checklist to ensure your event is safe and secure for all participants, volunteers, and other stakeholders and that the event is conducted fairly for all competitors.
Your sanctioned event will also benefit from the knowledge and experience of TriNL board members and associates, as well as promotional opportunities through our website, news feed, and member email list. TriNL will assign a Technical Delegate (a certified triathlon official) to review the sanctioning document and work with your event team to make the event successful for everyone.
