North Bay Triathlon Weekend
2019 Triathlon: Saturday June 29/Sunday June 30
The North Bay Triathlon started after the Schmidt family athletes attended a triathlon in Ottawa in the early 90's and came back to North Bay saying "We should do that here". Arne and Judy Schmidt along with the support of the North Bay Rotary Club made it happen and the first one sold out months ahead with about 75 participants. The organization of it eventually switched to the Kiwanis Club, especially its triathlon members.
This weekend is a true, all-round community event which shows off North Bay's hospitality and unparalleled camaraderie. The support of local partners and the City of North Bay is second to none. All three of our triathlon events meet the highest standard and are sanctioned by Triathlon Ontario.
