Description: The Kelowna Apple Triathlon hosted the very first World Championships in 1988. Even though that event was an unofficial World Championship, it was followed the next year by the formation of the International Triathlon Union and the first official World Championships in France in 1989. The Kelowna Apple Triathlon also hosted the Canadian National Triathlon Championships in 1992. It was Canadian Simon Whitfield's first national event. Simon went on to win the Olympic Gold Medal in the very first year that Triathlon became an Olympic sport in Sydney, Australia, in 2000 and then won the Olympic Silver Medal in 2008 in Beijing, China.

The Apple was awarded National Championships for Elite and Age Group participants for 2004, 2005, and 2008 to 2011. It has been recognized as an International Triathlon Union (ITU) event since 2005.

The Vision of the Kelowna Apple Triathlon Society is to provide Canada with a high quality triathlon event, recognized nationally and internationally by the triathlon and sports community .


Course Info:  The Kelowna Apple Triathlon features a very spectator-friendly course in the heart of downtown Kelowna. Multiple loops are used for the various races to cover the bike and run distances. It sends the cyclists up the legendary Knox Mountain, then over rolling terrain back into town. Lines with spectators and marshals, the bike course will for sure put a smile on every racers face! The run follows the shoreline of sparkling Lake Okanagan and is flat.
