Just like that, my first Multisport event of the year is over. The 2019 Gravenhurst triathlon is one of my favourite sprint courses and I look forward to it every year. For those who are considering signing up next year, I hope this post helps! First of all, Gravenhurst is beautiful. Everything from the small […]
By Luke Ehgoetz So the sun is out, the birds are singing and the temperature has finally and consistently warmed up. You’ve put in some great weeks (or even months) of training since coming out of your basement in the spring and it’s likely you have a race or two under your belt so far […]

But being the first race of […]
By Taylor Speirs Triathlon, like many long distance endurance sports is like experiencing life in one day. One of my idols in the sport of ultra marathons, Ann Trason, describes this best stating: “I’ve always looked at running 100 miles as life in a day, it has all the trials and tribulations as life in […]
Some pre race, bike course footage and post race recap video.
In triathlon training there is a continuous battle between mind and body. Training is full of ups and downs, highs and lows, good days and bad days. There are amazing training days, where everything seems to be going your way, and there are horrible, tormenting training days, where all you want to do is give […]
