About the Triathlon

The 22nd annual event is coming up on Sunday July 21, 2024! 

The Savary Island Fun Triathlon is a registered non-profit that aims to support the Savary Island Volunteer Fire Department (SIVFD) and bring the community together annually for a family-friendly event. The triathlon is typically held in mid to late July, and draws up to 100 participants and many more spectators and volunteers! In 2023, funds raised from the event were put towards purchase of an AED (automated external defibrillator) for the island. 

We invite families and friends of all fitness levels to challenge themselves to achieve their personal bests. Participants can enter as Teams or Individuals, and choose between the Recreational and Competitive divisions.


The race course takes participants across the full length of beautiful Savary Island: through the ocean, along the sandy roads, and even through a forest trail. The race has always started with a procession down Malaspina Boulevard led by members of the Clansman Pipe Band.


The race is sanctioned by Triathlon BC. Additional race support is generously offered by Steve Mattina and Karen Warrendorf from the Running Room. 

We gratefully acknowledge that the race takes place on the traditional, ancestral territories of the Tla’amin, Klahoose and Homalco First Nations. The traditional Tla'amin place names for Savary Island are ʔayhos/Ihos (double-headed sea serpent) and qayɛ qʷən (Fresh water spring).

Thank You to our Sponsors

Our event would not be possible without our dynamic team of volunteers, including the First Responders, the SIVFD, and members of the Savary community!
