2017 Triathlon of Compassion
When: June 25th, 2017
Where: Esquimalt Rec Centre
This year marks the 24th annual Triathlon of Compassion! The longest running fundraiser of the Victoria Sexual Assault Centre (VSAC), this fun and feel-good event sees athletes of all abilities and ages come out to swim, bike and run to support VSAC’s programs and services.
Last year’s event was an incredible success where over 130 participants raised $25,000 to support survivors of sexualized violence. Our top fundraiser last year raised $3320 for the Victoria Sexual Assault Centre! Whether someone raises $20 or $3320, every dollar raised makes a difference because 100% of it will go to support the programs and services of the Victoria Sexual Assault Centre. This years’ goal is $25,000, and you can help us reach it!

Great for First-time Triathletes
Seeing the word triathlon can be daunting for most folks, but the Triathlon of Compassion really puts the “try” in Triathlon – our focus is on completion, not competition! It is a shorter distance triathlon (500m swim, 20k bike and 5k run), making it an ideal event for beginners and a great tune-up for experienced athletes!
Create a Team of 3
The other great part is that you can sign up as a team of three; meaning one swimmer, one biker and one runner! We bet you can find two friends, family members or co-workers to create a team with you. Teams of two are good to go as well.
Fun for Kids
The event also features race distances for kids, ages 5 years old and up.
Prizes for Fundraising
There are great prizes for the top fundraisers like a new bike and weekend getaway.
