Changes for KAT for 2014
The Kelowna Apple Triathlon Society has announced that the annual Pushor Mitchell Kelowna Apple Triathlon will be hosting the Kelowna PATCO Premium Cup Race (Elite Sprint race on Sunday), a Junior Elite Race (Race #4 in the National Series and the BC Provincial Championships) as well as the Elite Paratriathlete Race on Saturday.
The Olympic race is again the BC Provincial Championships. In addition, the Apple Triathlon awards three spots in each age group for each gender in the Olympic race for the 2015 World Championships in Chicago. It is also a "qualifying Race" for anyone who wants to apply to Tri Canada to go to the World Championships.
Your results from the 2013 events are available here. We hope you had a PR!
Simon Whitfield - Olympic Gold and Silver medal winner - about our race:
"The Apple Triathlon was my first Olympic distance race back in 1992. It remains, to this day, one of my favorites: held in a wonderful city, with great people, incredible scenery and with the generous support of the city, the people of Kelowna and the incredible volunteers. The National Team along with triathletes from all across Canada can't wait to get to Kelowna, enjoy the sunshine, spend some money!!!! and go home to rave about your wonderful home in the Okanagan."
We acknowledge and
thank the BC Government for its support.
