Oakville’s beautiful Appleby College is the perfect venue for a TRi KiDS race. The event, which takes place entirely on the school grounds, sold out in 2009 so be sure to register early.

Venue Information

TRi KiDS Oakville takes place on the grounds of Appleby College. The school is located at 540 Lakeshore Road West. Participants swim in the indoor pool and the bike** and run course will loop around the charming campus, with some age groups doing multiple loops.

The bike course is best suited to mountain style bikes as there are 6 speed bumps approximately 150m apart. Athletes will be instructed by volunteers to slow down at each bump.The speed bumps are not typical but are wide with a flat 2' top and easy to negotiate with reduced speed.

Course Description

Swim

The swim takes place in the indoor pool at Appleby College. Lifeguards will be on deck at all times. Athletes will swim 2 per lane. There will be a maximum of 10 athletes per wave. One parent or guardian must accompany participants of the 3-5 age group in the water and on foot for the bike and run. All athletes may use water wings or a life jacket. Life jackets will be supplied. Flutter boards or flippers are not permitted. It is expected that athletes 6 years of age and older will not require assistance from a parent but special arrangements can be made. There will be plenty of volunteers on hand to assist at any point during the race. Contact us with special requests or for specific details on the swim.
