Athletes with a Disability


The Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team in conjunction with Tri BC have added a new racing category in both triathlon and duathlon for athletes with a disability(AWAD).


An AWAD athlete who is considering entering our event should first contact Mr. Victor Vandenboomen (250-217-9249) to discuss any questions or issues you may have before formally submitting an application form. Victor did the triathlon last year just 8 months after breaking his neck in a cycling accident and his determination has inspired us to do whatever we reasonably can to accommodate athletes with similar physical disabilities. Check out this page for Victor's inspiring story (includes video).

If you are considering entering this category you can obtain some more information at
