#MSCWasagaBeach – Our 15th Year & Awesome Weather

Thanks to everyone who came out to our 15th Wasaga Beach Triathlon and Duathlon Weekend.

Racers on both days were treated to near perfect swim conditions. Saturday featured sunny skies, steamy temperatures, and a packed beach area which made for an exciting finish line area along Beach Drive. Sunday’s mostly overcast skies created cooler racing conditions, and thankfully the forecasted rain stayed away.

Here are some of our First Timers. Congratulations & Welcome to the Triathlon Family!

Collingwood G&M Hospital Challenge

Congratulations to everyone who took part in the Collingwood G&M Hospital’s Emergency Department’s fund raiser at the Wasaga Beach Triathlon Weekend. The amount raised is over $115,000 and that means that the renovation project is now completely funded and will start this fall. Thank you all for your role in supporting this very important effort!
