Participants in last year’s QB Triathlon — registration for this year’s event is now open.

Registration is now open for the 2015 Quality Foods Qualicum Beach Triathlon, taking place on Sunday, June 28 around the Ravensong Aquatic Centre.

Spots for the event tend to fill up quickly, with almost 600 people taking part last year, so make sure to take advantage and sign up early online.

There won’t be any day of race registration, so be sure to register online before the spots fill up.

There are 18 categories in total at the triathlon, 11 individual and seven team categories, that will see hundreds of racers of all ages taking to the pool, running through trails and riding their bikes throughout the course.

Ranging in age from the Tiny-Tri’s (ages 4-7) all the way up to the 70+ division, there’s something for everyone at the 19th annual QF Qualicum Beach Triathlon.

While children take part in shorter courses, those over 18 swim 400 meters, bike 18 kilometers and run another five kilometers.

School groups are also encouraged to take part in the big, fun event and sign up early online.

For more information on the QF Qualicum Beach Triathlon and to sign up for the triathlon itself, make sure to visit their website at www.qualicumbeachtriathlon.com.
