THE BOSTON PIZZA junior triathlon will not be held in Penticton this year and will return in 2017. In its place will be the Tri Power Club's Fun in the Sun Triathlon on July 16.

The Boston Pizza Junior Triathlon has been delayed to 2017.

Organizers posted on the Penticton Triathlon Club website that they have asked the TriPower Triathlon Club in Summerland to host their Fun in the Sun event this Saturday. Organizers of the Boston Pizza Junior Triathlon contacted the TriPower Triathlon Club nearly a month ago about running their event this weekend. The Summerland club initially had thoughts of not running theirs, which usually goes next weekend, because of the B.C. Summer Games.

The Fun in the Sun triathlon has 82 kids signed up and is for ages five to 18 and 19 and over. Registration for the event closes at 1 p.m. on Friday.
