Registration for the 15th annual Delta Triathlon opens tomorrow (Monday) at 6 a.m., and adults are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible.

The adult category usually fills up on the first day of registration, but there are also categories for relay teams, kids and youth.

This year's event will take place April 26 in Ladner, and competitors in the adult group will swim 700m, bike 20km and run five kilometers. All Tri BC rules will apply.

There were 135 adults in the 2013 triathlon among the more than 250 competitors.

For those who want to get involved without competing, there are 250 volunteer opportunities ranging from a few hours on the day of the event to management of a segment of the race over several months.

More information on the Delta Triathlon is at www.deltatriathlon.ca and athletes and volunteers can go online to www.eventsonline.ca to register.
