On Sunday, June 3, over 80 athletes took part in the 2012 Elkford Swim-Bike-Run Triathlon.

It is a sprint tri, which consists of a 750m swim in the Elkford Aquatic Centre, a 20km bike and a 5km run. There is a choice of routes for the bike ride – a fairly flat ride and a more challenging route up the mine hill to the Fording River bridge.

It was a mix of new and familiar names taking part. The weather co-operated and we were able to enjoy a barbecue after everyone was finished. Our sponsors and volunteers deserve huge thanks for making this event possible.

Top finish in the extreme sprint was Laura MacReady with a time of 1:19.00.  Brendan Morgan had the fastest time for the sprint, 1:05.21.
