Ironman Canada 2012

This year, the Okanagan is excited to be hosting the 2012 Subaru Ironman Canada in August! The thrilling Triathlon events will be held in beautiful Okanagan Park August 23 to the 28th, and will include a swim course, bike course and run course. Because rain is usually slight during the month of August in the Okanagan and morning winds are deemed as generally low, we expect the lake to be calm and the day to bring great weather for the athletes and spectators!
