The weather was almost perfect for this year’s TRI-IT Triathlon

Results are in: Langley City’s TRI-IT Triathlon big success

Dry weather was great news for those who tested their endurance in Al Anderson Pool and on the roads around City Park June 12.

Held under relatively cool temperatures and a partly sunny sky, Sunday’s 16th annual TRI-IT Triathlon had a reflective feel to it.

Six months after the passing of TRI-IT advocate and former Langley City Councillor Dave Hall, the triathlon now includes the Dave Hall Classic Division (60-plus age group) in his honour.

The event – which included laps in Al Anderson Pool followed by cycling and then running on the roads around City Park – had categories for youth ages 5-14, adults, seniors, and relay teams of up to three people. Prizes were awarded to the first place male and female participant in each age category.
