SunRype TRi KiDS Triathlon Series
Countdown to Race Season!

Race Season is Just Around the Corner!

We are only two months away from the start of the 2014 season and we have been busy preparing for a full summer of races. The season starts with TRi KiDS Burnaby in June and closes out with our largest race in Milton, Ontario on Labour Day weekend. All summer long we have the pleasure of seeing many returning TRi KiDS and meeting new families.

We are delighted to announce our new charitable partner, Autism Speaks Canada.  TRi KiDS are encouraged to fundraise for ASC to support their mission of changing the future for all who struggle with autism spectrum disorders. Please read on below to learn more.

We hope you enjoyed an active and fun spring break.  We're sure you're looking forward to the summer as much as we are. Feel free to contact us with any questions about the season ahead.

TRi KiDS Race Updates 
Mark your calendars!
TRi KiDS Burnaby - June 1st
TRi KiDS Okanagan - July 20th
TRi KiDS Calgary(new!) - July 27th  

TRi KiDS Burnaby will be on a NEW date - Sunday, June 1st.  It was necessary to  move the race one week to accommodate another event taking place near the sports complex. 

TRi KiDS Calgary We are very excited to be bringing TRi KiDS to another province!  TRi KiDS Calgary will be held at the Glenmore Athletic Complex on Sunday, July 27th.  Please pass this on to your family and friends in Alberta!     

TRi KiDS Fraser Valley We made the difficult decision to remove Fraser Valley (Langley, BC) from our calendar of races.  Our decision came down to safety for the bike portion of the event, with the speed bumps in the parking lots a real safety concern and the deteriorating condition (pot holes) of the school parking lot in the back by the splash pad.  

The community and the Township supported and embraced the event which made it a tough decision to make.
  We sincerely hope TRi KiDS Burnaby will be a viable option for Fraser Valley TRi KiDS families. 


Registration is OPEN!

Registration for all races is open and going strong.  We encourage you to review the important information on our Registration Page prior to registering your children. 

If you have any questions about registration please contact us via the contact form on our website. 
Autism Speaks Canada - New Charitable Partner


We are excited to announce our new charitable partner, Autism Speaks Canada. Autism Speaks Canada is dedicated to funding global research into the causes, prevention, treatments and cure for autism.


With 1 in 88 children being diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders and a growing number of adults with autism living with limited support, the need to find the missing pieces of the autism puzzle is greater than ever.  Autism Speaks Canada aims to bring the autism community together as one strong voice to urge the government and private sector to listen to the concerns of the community and take action to address this urgent global health crisis. 


Their signature event, Walk Now for Autism Speaks, is a fun-filled, family friendly event and is the single most powerful force to fund vital research, raise money to support family services programs and initiatives, and heighten awareness about autism. Experience the power of thousands united by a single cause by joining Walk Now for Autism Speaks.  Dates and walk locations are posted on their website


TRi KiDS athletes can fundraise for Autism Speaks Canada by printing off a pledge form and asking family and friends to sponsor your race.  Athletes who raise a minimum of $40 for Autism Speaks Canada or BC Children's Hospital will be entered in the season-ending draw for one of two Springfree Trampolines.


Autism Speaks. It's time to listen.



The SunRype TRi KiDS Triathlon Series continues to support BC Children's Hospital and the work they do for children. Pledges raised by TRi KiDS athletes help ensure that the most precious members of our society receive the best possible care.


Funds raised by TRi KiDS go directly to the Child Life Program. Child Life is a comprehensive program that helps kids and families cope with distressing events through therapeutic and recreational play. With your help, patients can have the 


most positive experience possible during their stay at BC Children's Hospital.  


Create your online fundraising page today! TRi KiDS athletes can post a picture and a personal message.  From their personal online page emails can be sent to family and friends. It takes only a few minutes to set up and every dollar counts as we work towards our goal of $5,000 this season. 


When everyone does a little the total result is extraordinary! Please make fundraising a part of your TRi KiDS experience.

The World's Safest Trampoline


Springfree Trampoline is the world's safest trampoline. Our innovative design removes 90 percent of product-related injuries caused on traditional trampolines. By removing the springs and frame from the jumping surface and adding a flexible enclosure, Springfree Trampoline provides families with a safe and fun way to stay active.


Come visit us at select TRi KiDS races and have a test jump to see why we are the world's safest trampoline! 

  • No Springs: The flexible composite rods lie beneath the jumping surface and out of harm's way.
  • Hidden Frame: The frame is well beneath the jumping surface - you can't hit it, period.
  • SoftEdge™ Mat: The mat is 30 times more shock-absorbent than pads.
  • FlexiNet™ Enclosure:The enclosure uses flexible net rods to cushion jumpers and prevent falls.
