Congratulations to all the athletes for their efforts on Sunday! It was a gorgeous day with perfect conditions. The lake was calm, the bike was virtually windless, and the run was beautiful and warm. Thank you Mother Nature for the help on Sunday!
Particular congratulations goes to Christina Charles, a local athlete from Prince Albert, who won the Female division for the third year in a row! Her time of 3:05:26 meant that she came in 5th over all! She did an interview with the Prince Albert Herald, which you can read here. Curtis Earl from Saskatoon came in first in the Men and overall with a great time of 2:55:56.
Of course a great race cannot happen without the volunteers! A big THANK YOU goes out to all the volunteers for helping make the race a success!
