Apple Triathlon returning to Kelowna in 2019

The Applie Triathlon is back for 2019. It was cancelled this past summer because of the smoke. Organizaer Susie Ernsting says it'll be the first weekend of July, the 6th and 7th.

She says. "I know more about the weather than I ever cared to know. We looked at the available weekends within the city and in the national and provincial event calenders to determine the best chances to actually run a race."

Ernsting says July is historically a beautiful time of year in the Okanagan.

She says, "Everybody is excited to come back. We will be hosting national championships in 2019." And, there's more exciting news around the Apple Triathlon to be announced in the coming weeks.

The Apple Triathlon has been a premier event in Kelowna for 36 years. Ernsting is expecting a sellout again, about 1400 participants.
