Niagara Falls Barrelman
Our good friends up North at Multisport Canada sent HFP a note on an exciting new race at Niagara Falls. Looks to be fun for the entire family.
Here is the official announcement:
A new epic long distance race arrives in Ontario!
The Niagara Falls Barrelman is a triathlon consisting of a 2k Swim, 90k Bike and 21.1k Run, and while it is the same distance as other 70.3 and Half Iron events we believe it will be a race that will be unrivalled in many ways. Winding its way through the Niagara Region, the race has been designed with both the athlete and spectator experience in mind and the Niagara Falls location makes it very special for a number of reasons.
The immediate area has a multitude of attractions for the entire family and the race will be taking place during the Niagara Wine Festival. It will be the only race where athletes on the run course will go past the Falls twice – this alone should make it a special day.
There will be lots more news in the coming months but so far the Barrelman: announced $5,000 in prize money with all athletes being eligible, unveiled a unique commemorative Finishers hockey jersey and awarded early bird draw prizes totalling over $3,000 with more to be awarded to all registered athletes. Entry includes a long sleeve shirt and finishers will receive a Finishers Medal and Finishers Hat. Please visit www.niagarafallstriathlon.com for more details and to enter.
