Do you have what it takes to be Tri-Conic?
RUN - DAY 1 (JULY 1ST, 2017)
All-out foot races begin at the Harbour Quay E&N Railway Train Station, home of Port Alberni's iconic 1929 No. 7 Baldwin Steam Train.
This event started it all! Known on its own as the No. 7 Challenge, runners will race the train on its 10K long journey from our busting waterfront, through town, and out towards McLean Mill National Historic Site - Canada's only operating Steam Powered Mill.
Event starts at 8:00am.
BIKE - DAY 2 (JULY 2ND, 2017)
Full-tilt bike races start at Port Alberni's scenic Harbour Quay, home of the iconic 1958 M.V. Frances Barkley. Cyclists will embark on an epic road race along the Bamfield Road to meet the Frances Barkley in the picturesque coastal community of Bamfield.
Once there, participants will be treated to a delicious Salmon feast on the stunning Pachena Bay Beach, owned and operated by our friends at Huu-ay-aht First Nations.
Event starts at 8:00 am.
SWIM - DAY 3 (JULY 3RD, 2017)
Extreme open-water swims begin on beautiful Sproat Lake Provincial Park, which has been the home-base for Coulson's iconic 1945 Martin Mars Flying Tankers.
Though the 'Phillippine and Hawaii' Water Bombers are 'retired' from active duty, swimmers will pass by the Bomber Base and/or the iconic Ka-ka'win Petroglyphs, fascinating and intricate stone carvings believed to pre-date modern history.
Event starts at 9:00am.
