Our Fourth Year At Belwood
In 2013, MultiSport Canada brought back the Belwood Triathlon and Duathlon, and on July 9th the fourth edition of the race saw another day of exciting racing.
Thanks to Local Presenting Sponsor
A healthy snack that’s all apple with just a dash of indulgence.
The incredibly tasty Martin’s Apple Chips were a huge hit on Saturday. All of the sample bags were rapidly snapped up and enjoyed by everyone in attendance – especially the Chocolaty Drizzle flavour. Mmmmm…so good. A few lucky racers took home Martin’s Prize Packs too.

Thanks Cody Beals
Special guest and World Class triathlete Cody Beals was on hand in Belwood to provide a clinic for all participants, and to answer questions before and after the race. Cody is one of the most intelligent and personable athletes on the circuit and we were grateful for his presence at the race that started it all for him 10 years ago.
Happy 200th Terry Singleton
Terry (pictured in the white hat and bib# 115) finished his 200th triathlon on Saturday, with many more to come. Congrats Terry!
A Salute To Three Inspirational Ladies
With all three of these impressive 60+ athletes competing at Belwood, this is a great time to throw some recognition their way. Lynda Lemon (pictured in red Team Canada uniform), Amy Mensch (Grey Team Canada uniform), and Janis Milliken (Ignition Fitness Tri Top) all regularly win their age groups when they compete and all did so again at Belwood. All have also represented Canada at various triathlon and duathlon World Championships – bringing home medals. Additionally, Lynda and Janis are both cancer survivors and as you can see, it hasn’t slowed them down one bit. Lynda and Amy regularly volunteer at our races and are responsible for the outstanding volunteer crew you experience at Welland and Barrelman. Thanks to all of you for your excellence and your dedication to our sport!
