Paratriathletes

The Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team, in conjunction with Tri BC, have a paratriathlete racing category in both triathlon and duathlon events.

A paratriathlete, formerly known as an AWAD (athlete with a disability), who is considering entering our event should first contact Victor Vandenboomen (250-217-9249) to discuss any questions or issues you may have before formally submitting an application form. Victor did the triathlon in 2007 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. 

If you are considering entering this category you can obtain more information at tribc.org
