It’s official: Frontrunners Fit Chiropractic Dodge City X has been named the 2022 Canadian Age Group Cross Triathlon Championship event. This is the first time the Canadian Cross Triathlon Championship has been held as a standalone event, and we’re super proud to have the confidence of Triathlon Canada and Triathlon BC to blaze this exciting new trail.
So what does this all mean? First, it means that the winners of each age category in our Standard Event will also be crowned national champs and will receive special Canadian Championship medals (in addition to the swanky DCX “woodals” you know and love). It also means that the top three finishers in each age category of that same Standard Event will automatically qualify for the world cross triathlon championships in — wait for it — Ibiza, Spain. Sorry, “Ibetha.” However you say it, it’s gonna be muy bueno.
Do I have to qualify?
This is the best part: no. Frontrunners Fit Chiropractic Dodge City X remains open to all competitors, with no pre-qualification required. If you’re a Vancouver Islander, this is a unique opportunity to pit yourself against Canada’s best on your home turf and compete to become the Canadian Cross Triathlon champion for 2022.
If you’re from elsewhere, it’s a perfect opportunity for a late season race-cation, and a chance to discover the world-class trails of Cumberland, the epicentre of Vancouver Island trail culture.
Please bear with us as we update our website to reflect this new change, including translating it into French for our francophone friends.
The take-away is this: if you’ve been thinking of giving Frontrunners Fit Chiropractic Dodge City X a try, this is the year to jump in feet first. Who knows, you may just end up a national champion.
