The 25th Annual Tinman Triathlon is coming this Saturday, June 7th!

PromotionWe expect at least 3,000 people in town throughout the day, all potentially exploring and supporting our local businesses.

To help promote our local businesses we will have a costumed Tinman and a Star Trek character handing out coupons and information about our community to competitors and spectators throughout the day. If you would like some free promotion on Saturday, here are some suggestions for things that we could post or distribute on your behalf.

– coupons or gift cards
– promotional posters
– information about your business
– prizes (with your business name/info prominently displayed)

If you can’t print anything off, you can just let us know what information we should pass on (ie. 2 for 1 sunscreen), and we can have the Tinman/Trekkie “talk up” your business.

You don’t have to do a “sale” for the Tinman… this is also an opportunity to showcase what you are doing every day.

If you would like to participate, please drop off coupons, promotional posters or prizes to Colleen Carey at Co-Operator’s Insurance by 5:00pm on Thursday, June 5th.

Reminders about the day:
Our first heat starts at 7:30, and our last heat finishes around 5:30. We have competitors ranging in age from 3 to 70, all at varying levels of competitiveness. Centre street will be closed from 5th ave west to the Highway all day long, Highway #534 is open but speed is reduced to ensure the safety of all athletes and volunteers.

The Vulcan Tinman Triathlon has been operating for 25 years and over that time has contributed over $150,000 to local groups,

in addition to building the Vulcan Bodywork’s Fitness Centre !
