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!

What an incredible day we had on Sunday at the 31st edition of the K-Town Triathlon. It was the first one under the MultiSport Canada umbrella and we thrilled to host you all. This event has a unique vibe and friendly atmosphere thanks to all the incredible volunteers and spectators. We are proud to continue to strong traditions of this race and look forward to more in the years to come. As such, MultiSport Canada made a donation of $4000 to the K-Town Tri Legacy fund which is being coordinated by the Community Foundation for Kingston & Area.

Here is a message from Sophie Kiwala, the MPP for Kingston and the Islands. She was at the finish line handing out medals for most of the day (pictured below with race winners Kristen Marchant and Cedric Boily).

As Kingston and the Island’s MPP and the Parliamentary Assistant to the Ontario Minister of Tourism, Culture, and Sport, it gave me enormous pleasure to be able to present the finishing medals at the ‘KTown Tri’. My congratulations go out not just to the participants but also to the organisers, the Kingston police and the small army of volunteers who ensured that the races were safe and enjoyable for all concerned.

There are many reasons to compete. For some, your efforts would have presented one of life’s greatest challenges, while others may have been honouring the memory of a loved one, friend or colleague. For the more experienced runners, swimmers and bikers, the race might represent a shot at a personal best or even perhaps a stepping stone towards Olympic glory. For most of you however, I suspect that there needs to be no better reason than the celebration of good health and sharing in the obvious camaraderie that surrounds the sport you love.

Whatever the reason for your efforts, I was in awe of your commitment and achievement. Equally important, you gave inspiration to the many adults and children who came along to watch, learn and support you.

May your life’s journey be filled with the enjoyment of sport and good health and may your passion continue to infect those around you – JOB WELL DONE!!

Warmest regards,

Sophie Kiwala, MPP

Parliamentary Assistant to the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport

The K-Town Long Course Triathlon

The first edition of this Ontario classic started in 1984, and Kingston’s Cedric Boily and Newmarket’s Kristen Marchant, added their names to the impressive list of champions on Sunday. Some of those former champions include: Simon Whitfield, Sharon Donnelly, Joanne King, Mark Bates, Richard Browne, Julie Curwin, Tereza Macel, Mike Neill, Jamie Cleveland, Rick Hellard, Nigel Gray, and Sean Bechtel.

Boily dominated the men’s race with top splits in all three segments. He led the swim (26:26), extended his lead during the bike (1:22:13), and closed with a 58:09 run in the heat to earn the overall victory in 2:47:33.

Cedric Boily wins the K-Town Long Course Triathlon (Sunday August 3, 2014).

No stranger to leading the swim at the Recharge With Milk Triathlon Series, St. George’s Angela Quick led all women out of Kingston Harbour in 26:39 with Marchant in second, just 90 seconds later. Quick gained another 3 minutes on Marchant after the bike ride. Once on the run, Marchant made use of her run strength despite just getting over a stress fracture that prevented her from running during the first half of the season. Marchant, a Recharge With Milk Ambassador Team member, posted the top run of 1:01:48 to finish in 3:05:40 and claim the women’s title. Ottawa’s Robyn Hardage rode the top split of 1:31:45, and ran 1:05:03 to pass Quick for second.

Kristen Marchant wins the K-Town Long Course Triathlon (Sunday August 3, 2014).
