Mapping and GPX Files
Due to several issues beyond our control the 2022 racecourse has been altered so we are able to work around the issues and present what will be a course that is every bit as challenging as the original.
The maps below show the course for each stage:
Swim Course This has been changed to a looped course starting and finishing in Okanagan Falls on a 2 by 5 KM Loop. This is in response to making the handling of equipment less of a problem as cleaning for Covid is a thing. It also makes planning for the swim a lot easier for the athletes and crews as you will begin and end in the same location Kenyon Park/Christie Beach. Hoodoo Adventures will look after your escort craft and paddler no need to worry about transportation of a watercraft. Be sure to contact Hoodoo Adventures as per the instructions in the Swim Manual. See the Swim Map »
OK Falls location also serves as the finish for the Day 1 Bike.
Bike Course There are no changes to the course but rather a couple of small tweaks as the course starts in Okanagan Falls. The detailed map books from previous years can be used as a guide. Bike south on Highway 97 to Osoyoos, head west on Highway 3 over the Richter Pass to Keremeos, head north to Upper Bench Road, turn right and continue out to the end of Barcelo Road, and then turn back to Hwy 3A (The out and back in Keremeos has been stretched out to make up the difference in distance), turn north to the Kaleden Junction and south to Okanagan Falls, turn left at Cedar St. and finally turning left at 8th Ave to the finish line.

We do apologize for not having new GPX files available for all the courses. With the number of changes, we simply have not had the time to produce them. We will provide you with a detailed route description for use by the crews during the event for navigation purposes. The guide will contain elevation information. If we can produce more information, we will release it if and when it becomes available.
We have moved most of the event to begin and end each day in Okanagan Falls, ending the need to double book accommodation in Princeton for the end of Day 2. All accommodation bookings can be in Penticton or Okanagan Falls for your convenience.
