Last Sunday we saw a new record with over 1,000 individual athletes start the race. On behalf of the MultiSport Canada team, I can’t thank you enough for making Barrelman the largest non-70.3 branded race in NORTH AMERICA!
If you are not familiar with our Facebook pages, I invite you to visit and like our Barrelman Niagara Falls official page where important information is shared all year long. There is also a Barrelman Niagara Falls Group page with over 1,000 exceptional members who share tips and support each other. For the past few days our Facebook pages have been buzzing with all sorts of wonderful stories, emotional recaps and plenty of smiling faces.
Registration is open with a major change
Barrelman Niagara Falls has always been about giving athletes the best race experience possible. We realize that the swim can often be the source of anxiety for quite a few athletes. We experimented with the Choose Your Own Wave in 2019 and, based on athlete feedback, felt we could improve. In 2020 we have decided to no longer offer the Choose Your Own Wave and have developed a system that we feel will give you a better swim experience.
When you register you will be given four options as to what you believe your overall time will be. Three of the options allow you to choose to race as an age group athlete, where you will be eligible for age group awards. The other option is for athletes who want to race for the prize money. Those athletes will not be eligible for age group awards. Please note: If you are racing for prize money you DO NOT have to be a Pro Triathlete.
When registration closes we will create the swim start waves based on the above responses and start athletes in age group waves who are of like ability. We are confident this will give you a better swim and race experience.
Right now and until October 31 you can take advantage of our EARLY BIRD pricing. Our U.S. friends get an even better deal because with the currency conversion they will only be paying $166 (based on today’s exchange rate). After the success of this year and all the positive feedback please let your friends know this might be the year that Barrelman sells out.
