Sydenham Water Temperature Update

The Sydenham Triathlon/Duathlon & Lakeside Run is just two days away!

In the week leading up to the event we are inundated with requests for water temperature updates! Here it is!

The last reading we took was on Wednesday July 4th during the height of the heatwave.

Temperature at Last Reading: 26.6℃

With cooler temperatures moving in for the next couple of days –it’s supposed to be 11℃ overnight in Ottawa on Friday– we expect the water temperature to come down a little bit. But expect a balmy swim nonetheless!

As per the rules, which you should all know by heart, wetsuits are legal at all Somersault races regardless of water temperature. That being said, if the temps stay high, you might want to consider a sleeveless suit or no suit at all.

If you need to rent a wetsuit, make sure to contact Cyclelogik!

We’re looking forward to seeing everyone in Sydenham on Sunday morning!

See you at the races!…


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.
