Junior triathlon date changes

The Boston Pizza Junior Triathlon has been bumped to Aug. 22.

With the B.C. Summer Games taking place in Nanaimo July 17 to 20, the Boston Pizza Junior Triathlon has been bumped to Aug. 22. Race director Troyce Beglaw said the dates usually change every two years as it normally takes place prior to the Peach Classic Triathlon which is on July 20.

“In the past we’ve just always had fewer of the older athletes come,” said Beglaw, adding that he spoke to Steve King and a few other people about moving the BP Junior Triathlon to the week of Challenge Penticton.

Beglaw, who is officiating the triathlon events for the B.C. Summer Games, said in having it part of Challenge events, it makes it more family oriented and something for the kids to do. However, Beglaw said the triathlon will return to its usual weekend with the Peach Classic. Currently the BP Junior Triathlon has 60 kids signed up and he’s hoping for 150, but he’s not sure if that will happen with other events scheduled around the same time. Entry forms for the triathlon can be found at www.challenge-penticton.com under enter.
