The Tyhee Lake Triathlon is an annual event that takes place in Telkwa at Tyhee Lake Provincial Park. It is a great race for those new to multi-sport events and for competitive racers alike, and is one of the most affordable races in the province. The event is sanctioned by TriBC and includes youth, junior, masters' and team Triathlon categories, as well as a Duathlon option for those who prefer to stay dry.

The course is well-marshalled by enthusiastic volunteers and the lake swim is supervised by qualified lifeguards and numerous volunteers in kayaks and on SUPs. Lake temperature is comfortable for swimming, and wet suits are allowed but not required unless the water temperature drops below 16°C.
The bike course follows the road around Tyhee Lake and is well-marshalled by volunteers; cyclists should bring their own water as there are no water stations on the bike route.
The run takes place on rolling, quiet, rural roads and there are water stations spaced along the route. The race finishes with a gentle descent into Tyhee Lake Park where you'll cross the finish line to cheering spectators.
After the race there is a great BBQ, edible cookie medals and lots of draw prizes. Camping is available in the park.
