Bike Drop and Numbering

All participants must drop their bikes off and be marked with their number for the race at the barge ramp at the east end of the island between 7:15 and 8:40am.

Walk to Start Line

At 8:40am the bagpipers will lead the swimmers along Vancouver Boulevard to the start line at the wharf.

Start Time : 9:00 am

Swimmers in the competitive division will start several minutes before the recreational swimmers.


The route will be clearly marked on race day, including aid stations with refreshments and fruit. Also, the SIVFD and First Responders kindly volunteer their time to keep you safe along the way.   There is some overlap between the bike and run routes, so watch out for each other!
