Sprint & Standard Triathlons
Dynamic Race Events is proud to present the Oliver Sprint/ Standard Triathlon on Saturday June 3rd, 2023. We are looking forward to welcoming back those who have raced with us before and those who will be racing with us for the first time.
The event is held on a Saturday, the day before the Oliver Half Iron. We will again be hosting both Sprint and Standard distance races. Hosting the event the day before the Oliver Half Iron enables us to focus on a weekend of triathlon and makes the event easier for the community and volunteers.
Sprint – 750 m Swim, 17 Km Bike and 5 Km Run
Standard – 1,500 m Swim, 40 Km Bike and 10 Km Run
Come Visit, Race, Relax and Enjoy Canada’s Wine Capital.
Oliver is located at the most northern point of the Sonora Desert, tucked into the southern end of B.C.’s beautiful Okanagan Valley. The swim is held in spring-fed Tuc-el-Nuit Lake, be on the lookout for the famous jumping carp! A scenic bike course follows a portion of the same course that our Oliver Half Iron follows, with a few minor hills. The run is a fairly flat out and back that takes you through the quiet streets of Oliver.
This event has hosted the Provincial Championships multiple times and will host the 2024 BC Provincial Championships for Standard distance on this fast, beautiful course.
“Canada’s Wine Capital” is renowned for the quality of wine grapes being produced there. Those grown in the favored Golden Mile and on Black Sage are sought by vintners province-wide. Oliver’s climate and topography offer the optimum conditions necessary to grow the preferred grapes. The town holds 10% of the country’s wineries and just over 4500 acres of the fine grape growing vineyards-68% of B.C.’s 6600 acres. Oliver has the largest concentration of both vineyards and commercial wineries in British Columbia . The majority of these are located along what is known as the Golden Mile of Highway 97, and on Black Sage Road just south of Oliver. New wineries and additional lands are being put into production in what is expected to be a growth industry for the next five to 10 years. The rolling terraces, exceptionally mild climate with lots of sun, gravelly soil and availability of irrigation produce the right elements for growing high-quality grapes.
Race with us and enjoy a new standard of support, both on and off the course, and explore the incredible wine country after the race with friends and family!
