On May 18 over 600 participants took the start line at the Somersault Events Early Bird Triathlon, Duathlon and Run Events. The Early Bird is a favourite for new-comers and a popular early season event and 2019 was no exception! Thanks for continuing to support our events as we continue to grow into the future!
This is one of our most popular events because of the pool swim. Open water swimming can be daunting for some and the Early Bird proves an excellent opportunity to try the sport in a controlled swim environment.
Even those who are experienced find the pool swim a great season opener. With the climate becoming more unpredictable year-to-year most Canadian triathletes have had little opportunity to practice open water swimming. The Early Bird provides a great opportunity to kick-off the season and slough off the winter blues without having to brave chilly waters!
Despite a few delays on the pooldeck we couldn’t have asked for a smoother execution and we’re looking forward to a beautiful summer of triathlon, duathlon and run events!
Our event partners play a big role in making Somersault Events such a great experience for our participants. They provide prizing, volunteers, and support so that we can continue to provide excellent value and execution of our events!
Big thanks to Sarah from Breathe for providing the prizing for our run participants and being onsite with her great products! We hope you had an opportunity to check them out!

The Somersault Event Series is the pre-eminent event series in Eastern Canada consisting of triathlon, duathlon, and running events for all ages and abilities.
As the COVID-19 situation and directives from our governments and public health agencies continue to evolve quickly, we have decided to pause new registrations for Somersault’s first three multi-sport events this season which include The Early Bird Tri/Du and Run, The Britannia Park Tri/Du and Run, and the Smiths Falls Classic Tri/Du and Run.
