Complete Our Post-Race Survey For A Chance To Win!
Where else can you let the race organizer know how you felt about the race and get a ballot to win one of $11,000 in prizes? We really do use the feedback you provide to improve our races and hope you will take a few minutes to complete the Woodstock Customer Satisfaction Survey. After every race we will send out a Post-Race Survey where we ask you about your race experience. Complete the survey and you will receive a ballot in the Season Long Draw. The survey helps us improve, make changes and let’s us know how we treated you on race day. You just need to tell us what you think of the race. Here is the Huronia Tri/Du/Give-It-A-Tri Post-Race Survey.
Our Season Long Draw – Everyone can win!
This year we will once again have a Season Long Draw, however now everyone has a chance to win. After every race we will send out a Post-Race Survey where we ask you about your race experience. The survey helps us improve, make changes and let’s us know how we treated you on race day.
As in past years we will also be awarding additional ballots based on participation. With the draw being held at the end of the race season it means the more you race the better your chance to win. We will track your races and once you have entered THREE OR MORE RACES you will automatically be given three extra ballots. Each additional entry will also give you another ballot.
Here’s an example: Compete in 5 races, you get 5 ballots. Complete the post-race surveys and get 5 additional ballots for a total of 10 ballots. Compete in 2 races and complete the respective post-race surveys you get 2 ballots. It’s our way of thanking you for coming out to our races all year.
We intend to keep adding prizes all year and will keep updating the prize list as the season progresses.
The Season Long Draw page has all of the details.
Niagara Falls Half Iron Triathlon in 2014

This race will be a standalone event and not part of the Recharge With Milk Series. Prepare yourself for one of the fastest and most iconic Half Iron races in Canada. Visit the Niagara Falls Half Iron website.
The Only Series With A Custom Podium Award Photo
The free custom photo for our award eligible athletes will continue but in a different manner. The award photos will now be in the FREEZONE gallery on My Sports Shooter’s Facebook Page.
Each race will have a FREEZONE, and each race will have an AWARDS Gallery.
The photo will be a customized podium shot with text and graphics with the race, date, names of all participants in the category as well as the statistics directly from Sportstats. You can download your free customized award in full print resolution instead of having to claim it by using a coupon. This totally streamlines the free award process and gives you an amazing keepsake to mark your achievement!
What if I can’t stay for the podium??? We are encouraging all podium participants to stay for the group shot but if you are not able, we are asking you to head to the Photo Tent area and get a great portrait done by one of our crew members. This photo can be taken with just you or with your bike if you want. The image will be customized with your race results and put in the FREEZONE gallery. You will be able to download it shortly after the event.
We will no longer be offering any coupons, discounts or free action shots for any participants. We have the FREEZONE gallery which will have lots of amazing photos from the day and encourage you to visit the Photo Tent to have a portrait done while you are on site. Those shots will always be free for you to download directly!
If you run into any problems, please contact Mike Cheliak at firstname.lastname@example.org.

My Sports Shooter – You’ve Been Shot Award
Mike Cheliak will be sorting out the most amazing shot from the race and the winner gets a FREE high resolution copy of the image! Smile big, act silly, jump for joy or tuck and roll. Just remember to do it for the camera!
Congratulations go to out to our Huronia You’ve Been Shot Award winner Eliza Yevzlin.
Yes, it was a hot weekend of racing, and our You’ve Been Shot winner – Eliza Yevzlin – is taking full advantage of the finish line sponge drenching from our volunteer kids. We think the kids are getting more out of this exchange.
Contact Mike Cheliak to claim your picture. Remember to smile and ham it up for the camera, and maybe you too can be a You’ve Been Shot Award winner.
Thank You To The Retailers and Sponsors At Huronia
We would not be able to provide the quality of races and draw prizes without the sponsors and retailers who support our series. Thanks also goes out to Du Tri and Run, our on site retailer. Please check out all of the Series Sponsors at the end of this newsletter.
Huronia Report & Results
By Roger Hospedales
That was certainly two steamy days of racing and very busy ones too. Saturday focused on the Olympic distance races, and Sunday kicked off with the Kids of Steel Races, followed by the Sprint distance races.
Further supporting the grassroots level of the sport, we awarded a special young athlete with the opportunity to take their triathlon training to a new level with the Huronia Triathlon Young Athlete Bursary.
Jenny is a 17-year-old from Barrie who is aspiring to achieve great things in triathlon. In 2011, she transitioned out of rep soccer to focus solely on triathlons.
She is currently preparing for the Age Group Worlds Sprint Triathlon in London, England in September and has already qualified for the Worlds in Edmonton next year.
This $750 bursary award will help Jenny with her costs in traveling and training with a group and proven coach in Caledon (instead of by herself with an online coach).
We wish you all the best as you work towards achieving all your goals.
The Bursary has been made possible through a generous donation from MultiSport Canada and the support of the Huronia Triathlon Volunteer Committee.
Here are our video recap of the Huronia Weekend:
Thanks for joining us at Huronia.
The next stop on the Recharge With Milk Triathlon Series brings us to Gravenhurst (Saturday July 13 and Sunday July 14).
For a complete rundown of Results please visit Sportstats, Official Timers of the Recharge With Milk Triathlon Series and MultiSport Canada. If you need any adjustment to the final results please email Sportstats.

A Reminder to all Athletes
Maintaining great relationships with the communities hosting our races is essential to ensuring that these races are successful and continue to exist. Therefore, athletes, please remember to be courteous out on the race course. Not only to volunteers and fellow racers, but also to the residents of the community you are racing in. And just like when you are out training, you need to share the road. It is a race but we do not own the road. Adopting the spirit of sharing and co-operation will make it a better experience for all.
