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
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).

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).
