Niagara Falls Barrelman:
The Niagara Falls Barrelman is an epic new & beautiful course starting with a calm sheltered swim in the Welland Canal, a fast and flat winding bike course through the Niagara Peninsula, and finishing up with a spectacular run that takes you past the Niagara Falls twice.
A canal swim in clean clear water. The canal is a recreational canal with no boat traffic. The water temperature should be in the 68F to 72F range. A 2,000m single loop swim that passes under two bridges with great viewing for spectators. This will be a wave start race with a maximum of 250 athletes per wave. The first wave will go off at 9:00AM and the swim course will close at 10:25AM.
After exiting the swim athletes will run up to Transition. Your bike gear bag will be laid out in numerical order on the path leading into Transition. PLEASE NOTE: This bag will also be used to put your wetsuit, goggles etc in. Our crew will transport it to the Finish. If you do not use the numbered gear bag we cannot be responsible for your wetsuit or other gear.
Well paved roads that wind through the Niagara Peninsula, along the shores of Lake Erie and into Niagara Falls. The bike course travels south-west from Welland, completes a small loop and returns north-east until just south of Welland. At this point the bike travels from Welland to Niagara Falls.  The bike will enter Niagara Falls along the scenic Niagara Parkway with minimal vehicular traffic.
Located in beautiful Kingsbridge Park on the shores of the Niagara River at Chippewa Creek. T2 will be protected by a 6ft high security fence and will be monitored at all times by contracted security services.  You will be able to remove your bike from T2 once the Bike Course is officially closed at 2PM on race day. T2 is on smooth pavement and will have a bank of portable toilets just outside for use both leaving T2 as well as finishing the 1st Loop of the Run Course.
This run course will be the most scenic of any Half Triathlon in Canada. Looping twice through the City of Niagara Falls and past the American and Canadian (Horseshoe) Falls with a finish in a beautiful park setting at Kingsbridge Park. The run will take you through a wooded area (Burning Springs Hill), through the City of Niagara Falls, past the Fallsview Casino, to the top of Murray Hill with a beautiful view of the American Falls and along the Niagara Parkway past the Canadian Horseshoe Falls to the Finish in Kingsbridge Park.
