Qualify for the 2015 ITU Long Distance Triathlon World Championship

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.

As hosts of the 2014 Ontario Provincial Long Distance Triathlon Championship, 3 qualifying spots per age group are up for grabs.

On June 27, 2015, the city of Motala will host the Long Distance Triathlon World Championship. The event coincides with the 50th anniversary of Vätternrundan. Situated between larger cities Stockholm and Gothenburg alongside beautiful Lake Vattern, Motala will become the second Swedish city to stage the ITU Long Distance Triathlon World Championships, with Sater having hosted the 1999 and 2004 championships.

Event organisers have proposed a 2-lap 4km swim, 3-lap 120km bike, and 3-lap 30km course for the 21st edition of one of the most grueling events on the ITU schedule.
