Record 214 Participate In St.John's Tri

Yesterday's St.John's Triathlon saw a record number of 214 participants swim, bike and run in ideal conditions with sunshine, no humidity, and temperatures in the mid to high 20's. A breezy wind cooled everyone down a little but also resulted in some slower than usual bike splits.

Congratulations to overall standard distance winners Stephen Dyke (2:08:03) and Caroline McIlroy (2:25:22) and to our trooper Jennifer Mersereau who finished her first ever standard distance triathlon in 5 hours 32 minutes.

The sprint distance titles were taken by Jordan Baird (1:07:07) and Alexandra Lys (1:20:38).

For the team events Mark Dillon & Alison Walsh captured first place standard distance in 2:28:52 while first place sprint distance went to Carl, Fiona & Bruce Sheppard in 1:17:25.

All results are available HERE and pictures will soon follow.
