The True North Tri Fest has NOT been cancelled.

The event is still being planned for 2021 following

Alberta Health Services COVID protocols.

Any changes will be posted immediately. 


due to the fact this if a FIRST YEAR EVENT and we must follow strict AHS COVID RESTRICTIONS, this year we made the decision to only offer events for ages 18+ (regardless of ability or athletic talent).

Our plan once restrictions ease next year, is to offer events for those under 18 years of age. Please understand that if COVID RESTRICTIONS were not an issue, things would look different. We are doing our best.

Please contact the Alberta Triathlon Association at

for more information on an event that is geared for under 18 years of age.
