The 29th annual Pushor Mitchell Kelowna Apple Triathlon, taking place on Aug. 19 to 21, provides the perfect opportunity for businesses in the Okanagan to challenge each other in the field of triathlon.

In addition to the triathlon events, the Okanagan Masters Swim Club will host the FINA-approved Kelowna Apple Open Water Swim Invitational.

The weekend includes the Northern Computer Business Challenge Sprint Relay presented by Total Office on Sunday, August 21.

There are individual and team categories. Get together a three-person team: one swimmer, one cyclist and a runner and challenge other teams. Teams are not limited to corporations alone, but can include associations, organizations, clubs and societies.

Ideally, the three-person teams will have both male and female members.

The Business Challenge Sprint Relay on Aug. 21 will start with a 750-metre swim at Tugboat Beach, followed by a 20-kilometre bike ride through downtown Kelowna and finishes with a five-kilometre run through the downtown Kelowna area and along the lake.

Ten teams have taken up the challenge so far.

For the Sunday events, 1,200 entries will be accepted. At present, 820 entries have been received.

Registrations will be accepted until Sunday, Aug. 14 at 11:59 p.m. or until the races are full, whichever comes first.
