Penticton Super League Triathlon suspended due to smoky skies

Okanagan air quality levels are hindering outdoor events

The men’s and women’s pro races in the Penticton Super League Triathlon have been suspended until further notice due to smoky conditions caused by wildfires in the Okanagan.

Although the first day of races went off without a hitch, Super League Triathlon co-founders Chris McCormack and Michael D’Hulst announced in a video on social media that the pro events are being suspended, at least for now, due to the thick haze of smoke in the region.
