Paradise Triathlon, including a surprising 3-4 degree overnight increase in water temperature!
The 14 degrees in Octagon Pond provided for a brisk but enjoyable swim for all 142 finishers. The 25k bike was extremely well-marshalled and patrolled by volunteers, police, race officials and Rovers. And the flat, tranquil "5k plus a bit" trail run around the pond made for a pleasant finish to a first-class event.
Congrats to Race Director Shawn Stratton and his fine team, and thanks to Steve, Selina and Paul for their usual photo contributions. Albums can be viewed at photos.trinl.com and individual race results are HERE. (Team results are HERE and HERE.)
