At MultiSport Canada, we always aim to provide the best athlete experience possible. While we strongly recommend athletes stay in Niagara Falls on Saturday night and take the shuttle into Welland on race day, we realize that for some athletes, it might be preferable to have a race day kit pick-up.
We are therefore pleased to announce that we will have two options for race kit pick-up, one on Saturday and one on race day. Athletes will be given a choice as to which they prefer two weeks from race day. Read more
Athletes will be receiving Hammer HEED and Hammer Gels on both of the bike Nutrition Stations and all Run Aid Stations.

We are pleased to announce that the inaugural Niagara Falls Barrelman Triathlon will offer participants a chance to qualify for the 2015 ITU Long Distance Triathlon World Championship in Sweden.

Once again and for legal reasons, Multisport Canada will now have to change the name of the Welland Long Course Triathlon. We will need a name to describe the Welland race that does not include the word “iron” or the term “70.3”.
Taking place on June 15, 2014, the Welland Triathlon consists of a 2K Swim, a 90K Bike and a 21.1K run. The swim is in the clean and clear waters of the Welland Recreational Waterway, the scenic bike course winds its way through the beautiful Niagara Region, and the run course travels on fitness trails along the Welland Recreational Waterway.
As we did with the Niagara Falls Barrelman, rather than coming up with the name ourselves, we have decided to take the opportunity to launch a contest to name the race.
The contest will be open until noon on March 28, 2014. The winning name will be announced on Monday March 31, 2014.
Please submit your race name suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are pleased to announce that the inaugural Niagara Falls Barrelman Triathlon will have a prize purse of $5,000.
