32 Years of the K-Town Triathlon
It was another incredible day of racing at the 32nd edition of the K-Town Triathlon. Over 550 racers participated, and there were more spectators this year to give the athletes the extra zip they needed out on the course.
Kitchener’s Alex VanderLinden and Angela Quick, both members of the Recharge With Milk Ambassador Team, took home the champions titles and some rent money (Yes, they are a couple) thanks to victories in the Long Course Triathlon (2km Swim, 56.2km Bike, 15km Run), adding their names to the prestigious list of past race winners (Simon Whitfield, Lisa Bentley, Mark Bates, Tereza Macel, Sharon Donnelly, and Pierre Harvey to name a few).
K-Town Long Course Triathlon Recap
Trailing Richmond Hill’s Andrew Bolton and Ottawa’s Jordan Monnink by close to five minutes heading to the run – they would eventually both be disqualified during the closing stages of the run after it was discovered that they missed a turn on the bike course – VanderLinden posted a race best 54:36 to claim the win (2:51:57). Inverary’s Billy Bostad finished second in his debut at this distance, and Kingston’s Marc Prud’Homme rounded out the podium in third.
