Triathlon of Compassion

Triathlon of Compassion

August 8, 2021

Hosted by Human Powered Racing in support of Victoria Sexual Assault Center. We offer a fun scenic sprint distance race (500m swim/20K bike/5K run) for adults and a full range of youth distances for youth aged 6-15.

The 2021 Triathlon of Compassion has been postponed to August 8, 2021 to increase the likelihood of having a physical event. Our intention is to host the triathlon at Esquimalt Rec Centre on that date with a few modifications to ensure the safety of our participants during the pandemic.

Should the race not be able to proceed due to health restrictions we will transition to a virtual race. Participants will still have the option of being timed while completing the official course.
The Victoria Sexual Assault Centre believes in a world without violence. So do we. Help us.
