Annual Triathlon Membership
We are working hard to make joining in as accessible as possible.
The first thing you need is an annual triathlon membership. The good news? Triathlon Canada is offering a FREE stand-alone membership to access the online racing content. A Triathlon Canada membership is included in the purchase of any provincial annual membership. If you have already purchased a 2020 membership, your $15 contribution to Triathlon Canada will be rolled over for next season. Our provincial partners are continuing to offer programming, so a provincial annual membership is still a great investment.
The second thing you will need is a FulGaz subscription. Every Triathlon Canada member receives a FREE 4-week trial. Just use the code in your member confirmation email.
- Annual: $12.08/month ($144.99/year)
- Monthly: $16.99/month ($203.88/year)
What equipment is required?
You will need the following to get the full experience:
- A device to run the FulGaz app
- A bike
- A smart trainer
If you do not have access to a smart trainer, you can still join in! A simple speed sensor will allow you to have results generated, or just enjoy the beautiful scenery.

Frequently Asked Questions
I am having technical difficulties!
The team at FulGaz can best support you with any technical issues.
How do I prevent my video from freezing or crashing?
The best way to guarantee a smooth ride is to download the course first – we HIGHLY recommend that you go this route. This way you are not reliant on stable internet for the duration of your ride. If you would like to stream the course, you can reduce the video resolution so that it doesn’t require as much bandwidth.
How do I access the Triathlon Canada rides?
Make sure you use the codes that have been provided to all members. These codes automatically place you in the “Triathlon Canada” group on the FulGaz system. You should see the Triathlon Canada logo on your main dashboard. This is where all of our rides will be. Please make sure you do the ride in the folder, as this is linked to our leader boards.
Do I need a Smart Trainer?
A smart trainer will give you the best user experience, however you can still participate without one. A simple speed sensor will allow your results to be recorded, or you can just ride along to enjoy the scenery!
Where are my results?
In order to appear on the leader board, you must have done the ride that is in the “Triathlon Canada” folder on the FulGaz dashboard. If you completed the right course but from the main ride list, your time can still be added to the leader board.
How long does the leader board take to update?
The upload is usually pretty quick, but it can take a bit of time for your data to be scanned into the leader board. Please don’t submit your results multiple times! If you do, you will end up with your name listed multiple times. FulGaz has a built in “clean-up” system that checks and removes duplicates periodically throughout the day.
What time do stages open and close?
- Pacific Daylight Time – 9:00pm
