Multi Sport Promotions was founded with the desire to produce top-quality multi-sport events on Vancouver Island. Our first event was the Double Trouble Off-Road Duathlon in 1994. Since that time we have put on 10 New Balance Half Iron triathlons, off-road duathlons, road duathlons, a mountain bike race, a Splash and Dash, an off-road triathlon, and the BC Cup cyclocross series Our events and the interest in them have continued to grow since our inception. We receive requests for information about our events locally, provincially, nationally and globally.
Since 1996, Multi-Sport Promotions has organized a tremendously popular, yet low-key and grassroots, half-Ironman-distance race. The New Balance Half Ironman, has sold out each of the past eight years and attracts a strong international age-group field capped by a weighty pro contingent.
Past winners include 2000 Ironman Florida winner Jamie Cleveland; Melissa Spooner, winner of the 1998 Ironman Lanzarote, 1999 Ironman New Zealand and 2000 Ironman Lake Placid; and the great Bowden. In 2005 it was the Canadian Long Course Championships.
Multi-Sport-Promotions is proud to bring you the first and last races in the BC cup series. Norm Thibault and Wendy Simms are known for their love of technically and physically demanding courses and these two races won’t let you down!
