The TTF Weekend is a celebration of community spirit, human endurance and tenacity.

On Sunday, July 21, 2019, athletes of all stripes will take on a uniquely urban triathlon on the downtown highways of Canada’s largest city.

Whether you’re a seasoned triathlete, weekend warrior or someone looking to add a challenging event to your bucket list, the TTF Weekend features, among others, both Sprint and Olympic Distance Races. These events will test your spirit and reward you immeasurably at the finish line.

The TTF is a celebration of athleticism at its finest and with relay options, our weekend will serve athletes of all capabilities.

We will bring together avid triathletes with those just beginning their journey in a supportive environment that celebrates healthy living and active lifestyles.

TTF Swim

The swim takes place in the inner harbour of Ontario Place’s West Channel. This area is protected by the breakwall, making for a less choppy open water swim.

The Sprint Distance Race comprises a 750 metre swim, and the Olympic, a 1,500 metre swim.

TTF Bike

The bike takes place on Toronto’s downtown highways, offering athletes a chance to ride past landmarks such as the CN Tower, Rogers Centre and Scotiabank Arena.

This is the only time that City Council allows for a race on portions of the Gardiner Expressway and Don Valley Parkway. Rush Hour Redefined, as we like to call it.

The Sprint Distance Race comprises a 20 km out and back on the Gardiner and the Olympic Distance Race, a 40 km out and back that also takes athletes north on the Don Valley Parkway to Eglinton Avenue.


The run takes place on portions of the Martin Goodman Trail (outbound), right beside the cool breeze of Lake Ontario, as well as the curb lane of portions of Lake Shore Blvd. (inbound).

The Sprint Distance Race comprises a 5 km loop and the Olympic Distance Race, two loops of a 5 km loop, for a 10 km run in total.

Both the Sprint and Olympic Distance Races end in Marilyn Bell Park (1095 Lake Shore Blvd. W.), located about 750 metres west of Ontario Place.

TTF Swim Start and TTF Transition Zone

Both the swim start and transition zone are located in Ontario Place’s Parking Lot 1 (955 Lake Shore Blvd. W.)
