Countdown to #Penticton2017 reaches only two months!
Two months until the Inaugural ITU Multisport World Championships Festival!
Slightly less than two months until all eyes are on Penticton for the inaugural ITU Multisport World Championships Festival. The qualifiers are in, the hotels are booked and we’re preparing to welcome thousands of athletes for this very special ten-day event. We’re proud to report that athletes from thirty-four countries will be represented in the six World Championship events.
Athletes headed to Penticton should check in with their National Federation to find out if they need to book their own transportion to and from the airport. If you’re seeking transportation options, you can book through our transport services page. These are the same great people who can help you book a wine tour or day tour of the area after the event!
There are endless activities for family and friends to partake in (besides cheering you on, of course). Great resources for planning activities include our guide to your Penticton experience, and our friends at Visit Penticton have a comprehensive guide that’s worth a look.
Athletes looking for that little something extra special can look at our VIP packages for the festival for a truly enhanced experience. For athletes looking for a little extra racing, you can still pick up a race as an open wave athlete, racing the same great courses as the World Championship events.
We’re running a contest from now until July 1st to name our mascot! Head over to our Facebook page or Twitter account where the contest is pinned from now until the end of the month. Person who is selected with the mascot’s winning name will win a VIP package for two in Penticton.
Follow along with all of the action on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram under the handle @ITUMultisport. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #Penticton2017. See you in two months!
