Great White North Half Swim


An open water 2 km swim is held in Hubbles Lake. Allan Beach features a large sandy area for the start and finish. We use a mass start so seed your self appropriately. This is a calm lake and the course is well marked and we will have a large contingent of lifeguards, scuba divers, and kayakers to ensure your safe completion of the first of three disciplines. Volunteers will be on hand to aid in removing wetsuits in preparation for transition on to the bike.



After you head out of Allan Beach Resort you turn right on Hwy 16 and head to Hwy 779 and turn south and head into Stony Plain. Turn right at 44th ave, turn right at 50th st, head past the pavilion and right onto parkland hwy. Take the overpass interchange onto hwy 779 and head north to the turn around 19.5km out, head back to Stony Plain and repeat the out and back. Technical support will be provided on course but make sure you have the appropriate supplies in case of mechanical issues.  When you finish, rack your bike, exit the transition zone and run through finish the official finish line.

Bike Course Nutrition:  F2C GLYCO-DURANCE bottles, water bottles, F2C Gels

Note that you pass the Pavilion (T2) on main street twice before finishing the bike portion.  After you finish the bike in T2, rack your equipment and then run to the finish line for your official celebration!

1st offense = 4 min in the P.T.
2nd offense = 4 min in the P.T.


Any competitor behaving in an unsportsmanlike manner will be disqualified on the spot. Our volunteers are the main reason this race is so great!
