Our Biggest Day at Belwood

Thanks to everyone who raced at Belwood, you were part of our largest turnout at Belwood, the third stop of the 2015 Recharge With Milk Triathlon Series.

We were treated to near perfect race conditions, and as is incorporated in our t-shirt design, the extra special feature at Belwood are the Ospreys.

Belwood Triathlon 2015

The swim exit at Belwood

Guelph’s Karsten Madsen led all racers out of Belwood Lake, with a 5 second lead over fellow Guelph native Jackson Laundry, the winner of our opening season race at Woodstock. Laundry launched his attack during the 30 km bike, riding the top split of 43:50, to take the lead, and even with the heat rising during the run, he also posted the top 7.5 km run of the day (26:05) to take his second Recharge With Milk Triathlon Series victory in 1:22:02. Madsen followed next for second (1:23:19), and Toronto’s Lee Rantala took third (1:28:26).

Just four weeks after having an appendectomy, causing her to miss the Rose City Half Triathlon, Kitchener’s Angela Quick returned to the top of the podium at Belwood. As planned, Quick utilized her outstanding swim and strong bike to get well ahead of the field and with a healthy lead, she ran steady to the finish line to take the win in 1:38:35. Waterdown’s Elise Bolger used the top swim to grab second in 1:39:06, and London’s Meghan Lamers was solid among all three disciplines to finish third (1:39:24).
