The National Capital is Coming!

The second of the Capital Challenge events is coming up! 

The National Capital is the oldest triathlon in Ottawa and one of the oldest in Canada behind the Smiths Falls Classic! This historic race is also one of the most popular events on the Somersault calendar! This event can get very competitive but it’s also a perfect event for anyone new to the sport. The atmosphere at this event is always exciting and exhilarating! 

Over that past 38 years, the National Capital has grown to include a number of different distances and events including duathlon, swimcycle and run events. 

In 2019, we’re excited to announce that the National Capital will host a Triathlon Ontario Youth/Jr/U23/Elite Cup!
