Community. Connection. Competition.
Following a number of years without a Triathlon in Summerland, the community of Summerland is coming together to put on a brand new race. Thanks to the support of many individuals and businesses within the Okanagan, we are excited to welcome you all to the inaugural Summerland Stone Fruit Triathlon!
Balanced Dynamics Coaching Society, a new non-profit based in Summerland, is putting on the event with the help of the community. One of the society's primary objectives is to organize and support local events that further community connections through multi-sport. By bringing this event to life and partnering with KidSport Summerland, we hope to do just that!
Janae Hoel, head coach and executive director at BDCS, is taking on the role of Race Director. She is an NCCP trained and certified triathlon and swim coach (respectively), and has spent the last few years working and volunteering in a variety of different sporting fields in the Summerland area. Janae also grew up in the sport of Triathlon, but turned to coaching after her Junior Elite years abruptly ended with a number of serious injuries. Although sidelined, Janae has continued to be involved in the Triathlon world and is looking forward to expanding her repertoire as a Race Director.
