Victoria Youth Triathlon Wrap Up

Runners in the super series take a corner right beside the Human Powered Racing tent.

We had a great day yesterday at the University of Victoria for the Victoria Youth Triathlon. The results are posted and we want to congratulate all of the athletes. There was a lot of heart and talent on display and it was our honour to make space for so many young athletes who will hopefully lead triathlon one day.

We had 177 athletes participate this year, ranging from six to twenty years old with the addition of the BC Super Series draft legal race. Watching the future of triathlon in BC is inspiring indeed!

Here’s a few more photos of the day.

This was race number two in the Island Savings Greater Victoria Youth Triathlon Series. The final race in this series is on June 24th at the Triathlon of Compassion!

Jay Krieger from the 2018 Tour de Rock Team was there making pancakes for us by donation. His team raised $705 for Cops for Cancer.

Thank you to our sponsors: Island Savings, Arbutus Physiotherapy, Trek Pro City Cycles and Frontrunners.

And thank you to all the volunteers who gave up their Sunday to make this event possible.
