Athletes test their strength in annual triathlon in gloomy weekend weather

An endurance test - Sprint class competitors took the dive in the Stettler Recreation Centre’s pool before the try-a-tri category Sunday morning

Some 30 residents braved a cool and rainy Sunday morning to take part in Stettler’s annual triathlon event, which saw them swim, bike and run to test their muscles while having fun.

Fifteen athletes took part in the individual sprint event while there was only one team, Team Sophie taking part in the sprint. In the try-a-tri, a shortened version of the race course, six athletes competed to clock the best time.

In the sprint event athletes swam for 750 m., biked 20 km. and ran 5 km with the participants in the try-a-tri swimming 200m, biking 10 km and running 2.5 km.
