The North Lake Physical Therapy Gator Grinder Triathlon is an excellent introduction for the first-time triathlete, as well as a great event for the experienced racer.  All proceeds support the Canby Swim Club.



500-yard (20 lengths, 10 laps) pool swim in a 6-lane, 25-yard pool, with up to 4 swimmers per lane.  There will be volunteer lap counters.  Drafting is permitted.  The swim will be seeded by the 500-yard swim time participants submit with the entry form.  Heat assignments will be e-mailed by the Monday prior to the race.  The first heat will be in the water at 7:30 a.m.  Check in at least one hour before your start.


The one-loop 12-mile bike course is over the beautiful rolling country roads that surround Canby.  A bike helmet is mandatory.  Drafting is not legal.  Volunteers will manage traffic at intersections, but roads will be open to traffic and cyclists will be responsible for their own safety.


The 3.1-mile run is mostly on roadways with about one-third on a paved walking trail.  The course is flat and fast.  Water will be available on the course.


The 2022 Gator Grinder Triathlon has 240 spots available, subject to change due to the pandemic. Due to the size of the facilities this is a hard limit. The race typically sells out, but we also normally go deep in to the wait list. So if you want in please don’t delay, but if you do end up on the wait list, don't despair... there's a good chance you'll still get in! We do have a cancellation/waitlist policy, please read it carefully.  
Online registration only. All race communication is done via e-mail.  Once registered, you will receive periodic informational emails, and your start time, heat & lane assignment the Monday before the race.  If you do not receive these emails, please check your junk or spam folders. NOTE: If you do not get a confirmation e-mail from enmotive.com after you have registered, your entry may not have gone through. Please make certain that you receive a confirmation e-mail from enmotive.com.
Cancellations by March 31, 2022 will be given a full refund less $10, assuming there is someone on the waitlist to take your place. No refunds will be given after March 31 or if your spot cannot be filled. After the race fills, we will maintain a waitlist. Entries are non-transferrable. Athletes will be selected from the waitlist on a first come, first serve basis.  PLEASE NOTE:  T-Shirts are only guaranteed to entries registered before March 31.
The top 5 male and female individual finishers in each age group will receive awards. Special award for the top overall male and female finisher and the top male and female finisher from Canby Oregon.
