Penticton is located in the south central region of British Columbia, in an area known collectively as the Okanagan Valley. With over 2100 hours of sunshine, and only 15 inches of rain annually, the area has a comfortable climate year round.
The City is surrounded by two freshwater lakes and gentle rolling mountains. A wide variety of outdoor recreational activities is augmented by amenities such as a newly renovated Community Centre containing two indoor pools, 4 sheets of ice, tennis courts, a curling rink, and a state of the art South Okanagan Events Centre housing the Penticton Vees hockey team.
Part of Penticton’s appeal as a race destination is the courses, which offers truly unique race experiences. The traditional single-loop swim and bike courses, along with the out-and-back run serves up a variety of sights and challenges. Those competing will be exposed to the pristine waters of Lake Okanogan, lush farmlands, bountiful orchards and vineyards, along with arid regions and mountain passes.

Kelowna Airport service mid to small aircrafts with most airlines having very strict excess baggage allowance due to the small size of the airport, for this reason we will include transfers to and from Vancouver Airport for person and bike.
