2018 Gold Coast ITU Triathlon World Championship Qualifying Event

Welcome to the all NEW Rev3 St. Andrews, Atlantic Canada’s premier Multi-Sport festival, taking place on July 9th, 2017. Opportunities abound for athletes and their families in the historic Seaside community of St. Andrews-by-the-Sea. Rev3 St. Andrews is a HALF distance race (2 km swim, 90 km bike, 21 km run) on a course surrounded by the Bay of Fundy.

One of Canada’s most charming historic communities, St. Andrews is situated on the World Famous Bay of Fundy; shared by the Canadian Provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia and the U.S. State of Maine. The  Kingsbrae Garden Rev3 St. Andrews is a Half – Distance event that starts and finishes at the beautiful Algonquin Resort in historic St. Andrews-by-the-Sea. Our race weekend also includes our Rev3 expo, the TRI St. Andrews Sprint Distance Triathlon and the “Run St. Andrews” 5K and 10K Race that shares the finish line with Revv3 St. Andrews. For all the Kids, don’t miss our Kids Splash and Dash that begins at the Algonquin Resort and finishes in the beautiful Kingsbrae Garden.

Our swim takes place in picturesque “Katy’s Cove” which is controlled by a causeway that allows the cold Bay of Fundy water to warm up to a comfortable 22-degree C (71-degree F) average in July. This swim course is spectacular, with lake-like conditions in a salt-water swim.

Athletes will then run up the hill to the Algonquin Resort and depart on their bikes again offering beautiful views of the Bay of Fundy and St. Croix River. Cyclists will pass by St. Croix Island where the explorer Samuel de Champlain set up camp upon discovering the region over 400 years ago. The majority of our bike course takes place on the brand new multi-lane highway, which is entirely closed down to vehicle traffic for the race.

Returning to St. Andrews and the Algonquin Resort, runners will be guaranteed to talk about our run course long after they finish. It is truly one of the most spectacular run courses in the sport. Runners will have views of several islands in Passamaquoddy Bay and then run through the heart of this historic community along the St. Andrews downtown waterfront. Along the way, runners will also pass by one of the most picturesque gardens in the World; our Title sponsor, the Award winning Kingsbrae Garden, which will play host to many activities race week.

The week will be full of opportunities for all family members and will conclude with our Maritime “Kitchen Party” Banquet and Awards ceremony on Sunday evening for all of our Rev3 participants.
