Thank you to everyone who participated in the 39th Frank Dunn Triathlon on August 11, 2019! Conditions couldn’t have been better for the 96 individuals and 54 teams registered. Seriously, what a gorgeous day! The volunteers were great and the spectators cheered loudly for their athletes. The weather was certainly better than last year when people wore their winter jackets!
The men’s race was a battle to the end with Wyatt Kuntz (2:47:20) from Warman beating out Curtis Earl (2:49:58) of Saskatoon to take the men’s title.
Anne Marie Charles from Prince Albert showed that she is as talented as her big sister Christina, who is off to Ironman Kona in October, to be the women’s winner with a time of 3:05:43 beating out Jackie Hatherly (3:06:32) from Regina.
Also congratulations to the winning teams:
Black Roses (Mixed Team) – 2:55:41
Run Like the Winded (Male Team) – 3:14:53
Byers & Tiede (Female Team) – 3:20:41
Congratulations to all the athletes that came out and enjoyed the most beautiful course in Saskatchewan for the oldest triathlon in Western Canada!

Of course, the Frank Dunn Triathlon wouldn’t be complete without the photos of our official race photographer, Bob Holtsman. As a fellow athlete, he is well-versed in taking amazing action shots! Please credit Bob in any of the places you choose to share the photos. If you would like printed copies, let Bob know!
