The St. Joseph Island Triathlon is Northern Ontario’s premier multisport event! Since the first race in August 2004, the event has grown steadily to include over 450 competitors, 150 volunteers, and close to 1000 spectators. It features Olympic/International distance triathlon and duathlon, Sprint distance tri/du, Try-a-Tri, and 5 Kids of Steel age categories, as well as relay categories for all adult races. The event has featured athletes from as far away as British Columbia, Nova Scotia, and Illinois, and is the most popular amateur racing event in the Sault Ste. Marie area.
This year’s event will take place on August 15th, 2015.
The event takes place in the community of Richard’s Landing, on beautiful St. Joseph Island. The swim takes place in Richard’s Landing in the clean, warm water of Lake Huron’s North Channel. The bike meanders through the rolling farmlands of St. Joseph Island on smooth, fast roads. The run travels through the heart of Richard’s Landing and out on to quiet cottage roads, finishing up near transition at the heart of the event.
Only 45 minutes from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, 3 hours from Wawa, and 2.5 hours from Sudbury, the St. Joseph Island Triathlon is an event you can’t afford to miss. Put it on your race schedule…you won’t be disappointed you did.
Just a reminder that June 3oth, 2015 is your LAST CHANCE to register for the earlybird rates for the St. Joseph Island Triathlon!

Why Do We Have An Earlybird Rate?
It’s important for us to get a sense of how many participants will be taking part in the event in any given year. There are are a lot of things that have to be booked and ordered well in advance of the event, and knowing we’re going to get a good turnout helps us to plan properly for it. It also helps us to pay for the things we need to pay for up front (shirts, medals, prizes, deposits on emergency services, applications for road closures…the list goes on). While we make no profit on the event, it is expensive to run, and without some money up front it would be impossible for us to move forward.
So, if we can provide an incentive for you to sign up early by giving you a break on your registration fees, and it helps us to ensure the event takes place, everyone wins! So get signed up, will you?
