#TheLegend Continues with the 33rd KTown Triathlon
It was another great day of racing at this classic must-do event on the Ontario race calendar. For all of you that raced with us, you know how incredible the volunteers are, and how special this race is. We hope to see you back again, and that you spread the word so that we can keep this legendary race going strong year after year.
Seeing all the @MultiSportCan #mscktown updates makes me excited for a possible long course debut at Welland or k-town next year!

KTown Finisher Medals
Before we get to highlighting the races and interesting stories from Sunday, we will address issue of the Finisher Medals. We’ve already posted this on our social media channels and emails were sent to all registered Sprint distance athletes. But just in case you missed it, here is a message from John Salt, Founder of the MultiSport Canada Triathlon Series.
A mistake was made involving the awarding of Finisher medals to all sprint distance athletes at K-Town on Sunday at the finish line. As we were setting up at the finish line to receive the finishers I made an error in communicating to the finish line volunteers about who should receive a Finisher medal.
Typically we do not give a finishers medal for races shorter than a Long Course but we had promised to keep this K-Town tradition alive when we purchased the race. And, while some athletes did receive their Finisher medal, many were missed.
We will be sending a separate email to all sprint athletes later this week asking who did not receive a medal. Once we determine who did not receive a medal, we will mail them out.
This error was my mistake and mine alone. The very simple explanation is that I somehow confused the Finisher shirt, for the Long Course athletes, with the Finisher medals for all. Don’t ask me how but I simply made a mistake. I know for some this is a very serious mistake and I do hope the athletes who were affected will accept my sincere apology. We all make mistakes and, as I said, this is mine and mine alone. Once again, my apologies to every athlete who was affected.

Thanks to All of our Volunteers
A big thank you goes out to Kathryn Handford for recruiting volunteers for Kingston.
We rely extensively on our communities (local service clubs, sport teams, athlete family members, current and past competitors) to provide the many volunteers required to safely stage our races. We need volunteers to work in many different areas. When you sign up to volunteer you can choose the volunteer job that most interests you or most qualified for. Our Volunteer Coordinators will do their best to place you in your chosen area.
Coming up this weekend we have the #MSCBracebridge (August 6 & 7).
The triathlons feature a Time Trial Start. The Sprint races take place on Saturday and the Olympic/International distances on Sunday.
