This is

What makes PACE Multisport Dodge City X Canada’s toughest off-road (cross) triathlon?

Is it the 1.5-km open water swim?
The 23-kilometre mountain bike across some of Vancouver Island’s gnarliest singletrack?
The glute-busting 9.5-km trail climb through that same legendary trail network?
The 950 m of total elevation gain?

Nah . . . What makes PACE Multisport Dodge City X so tough is that you have to swim, bike and run your way through a spectacular singletrack course that combines all of the above! (Don’t worry, there’s also a half-distance sprint and a relay option.)

Why would you put yourself through this? Because of the rush. Because of the challenge. Because net proceeds from PACE Multisport Dodge City X will be donated to the United Riders of Cumberland (UROC), who maintain and manage access to Cumberland’s world-class trail network.

But most of all, you’re going to put yourself through this to test your limits on world-class trails carved through lush rainforest, over mountain streams and alongside breathtaking ocean vistas. Oh, and because you’ll start and end your day in the heart of Cumberland BC, one of BC’s most kick-ass outdoor sports communities.

If you’re only going to do one cross triathlon on Vancouver Island this year, PACE Multisport Dodge City X should be it. (Although you should also check out XTERRA Victoria, a phenomenal race and a great primer for Dodge City X!) And if you’re looking for another great nearby cross triathlon (if you can get in before it sells out!) check out the Squamish Off-Road Triathlon!
