We are very excited about our partnership with Recharge With Milk and the Recharge With Milk Triathlon Series! Look for the Recharge with Milk Team at the finish line for your sample of chocolate milk to help you refuel and recover!

Cool mornings, sunny skies, and with some taste of the summer heat at the tail end of both races, Mother Nature treated everyone in Bracebridge with exceptional weather conditions this past weekend.

Saturday featured the Sprint distance and Give-It-A-Tri, while Sunday’s highlight races were the 2014 Olympic Distance Provincial Championships and serves as a qualifier for the 2015 Canadian National Team, and the always-tough International Duathlon.
