Come Visit, Race, Relax and Enjoy the Wine Capital of Canada.

Outback Events is proud to present the 11th Annual Wine Capital of Canada Triathlon. The WCOC triathlon is sponsored by the Oliver and District Chamber of Commerce and is located in Oliver, B.C. at the most northern point of the Sonora Desert , tucked into the southern end of B.C.’s beautiful Okanagan Valley . The swim is held in Tuc-el-Nuit Lake , runs parallel to the shore and the only thing to be aware of is the jumping carp. A scenic bike course is found on a portion of the same course that our Oliver Half Iron follows, with a few minor hills. The run is a fairly flat out and back that takes you through the quiet streets of Oliver.

This course was home to the Provincial Championships in 2005 and is a very fast and beautiful place to race. We had a luncheon and awards on the beach sitting beside the lake. Our transition is on road level as well on paved road through park which allows for a spacious transition.

 

 

The “Wine Capital Of Canada” is renowned for the quality of wine grapes being produced there. Those grown in the favored Golden Mile and on Black Sage are sought by vintners province-wide. Oliver’s climate and topography offer the optimum conditions necessary to grow the preferred grapes. The town holds 10% of the country’s wineries and just over 4500 acres of the fine grape growing vineyards-68% of B.C.’s 6600 acres. Oliver has the largest concentration of both vineyards and commercial wineries in British Columbia . The majority of these are located along what is known as the Golden Mile of Highway 97, and on Black Sage Road just south of Oliver. New wineries and additional lands are being put into production in what is expected to be a growth industry for the next five to 10 years. The rolling terraces, exceptionally mild climate with lots of sun, gravelly soil and availability of irrigation produce the right elements for growing high-quality grapes.

Race with us and enjoy a new standard of support both on and off the course, and explore the incredible wine country after the race with friends and family!
