This fall Banff will host the first annual Subaru Banff International Triathalon.

On September 11, 2010, athletes from around the globe will compete against each other in the pristine and breathtaking landscapes of Banff National Park.

Pristine Two Jack Lake is the location for the swimming portion of the triathalon. (Subaru Banff International Triathalon)

The participants will swim across Two Jack Lake, bike around the Minnewanka Loop and then run through the town of Banff to the finish line on Banff Avenue.

Races will include Olympic and sprint distances. The Olympic distances are 1.5 km swimming, 40 km biking and 10 km running. Sprint distances are 500 m swimming, 13 km biking and 5 km running.

Athletes of all ability levels are welcome- from beginners to professionals. Relay teams are another fun way to complete the race! Recruit two of your friends and finish the triathalon together (available for Olympic and sprint distances)!

Each participant gets a ton of benefits like New Balance custom technical race apparel, medals, podium prizing, post-race snacks and recovery nutrition, bragging rights and lots of stories!

Visit the Subaru Banff Triathalon website for details about the race and registration.
