Triathlon Season Has Arrived!

As the ponds start to warm up, the open water will soon be bobbing with wet suits as many NLRunners prepare for any or all of the this year's triathlons. Here's a summary of events and all can be found on our NL Running & MultiSport Calendar. Note that if you don't like the water there's always the team event!
