Westwood Lake Triathlon
Sun May 14
The 6th Annual Westwood Lake Triathlon will be taking place at Westwood Lake Park in Nanaimo.
Dynamic Race Events in partnership with the City of Nanaimo is excited to be bringing the event to the mid-Island. Westwood Lake Park is one of Nanaimo’s best loved parks and is located just 4 km from downtown Nanaimo.
Nestled in the foothills of Mt. Benson it is a year round destination. There is a 5.51 km trail around the lake, and is a popular favorite spot of local walkers and runners. Westwood Lake is a large lake with a maximum depth about 20 feet. Local triathletes begin swimming in the lake in mid-April. The transition for the event will be the main beach parking lot just meters from the water’s edge. The race offers Sprint and Standard courses in this epic venue. The swim will start off the main beach at Westwood Lake.
The bike courses for each distance share the first initial 10 km section leaving the lake. The bike course travels through roads west of Hwy 19 through the rural neighborhoods of Jingle Pot Rd., Brannen Lake and Dumont Rd.
The Sprint and Standard bike courses consist of single loop out-and-back courses before returning to Westwood Lake Park.
The run will be through the beautiful trails of Westwood Lake Park with the finish near transition.
