Inspired by the 2016 Age Group World Championships in Cozumel last week? Perhaps Canada could be your next triathlon vacation. Next year, Team Australia will be headed to Canada for the Penticton 2017 ITU Multisport World Championships Festival over the 18 – 26 August. Penticton will host the Duathlon, Aquathlon, Cross Triathlon and Long Distance Age Group World Championships.

Penticton is the heart of Canadian wine country, with 44 wineries and a developing craft beer scene and also plays host to IRONMAN Canada. Part of Penticton’s appeal as a race destination is the traditional single-loop swim and bike courses, along with the out-and-back run serving up a variety of sights and challenges. Those competing will be exposed to the pristine waters of Lake Okanogan, lush farmlands, bountiful orchards and vineyards, along with arid regions and mountain passes.
