Triathletes take to Langley road and pool

Langley played host to the first Mountain Equipment Co-op Sprint Tri on Aug. 10.

The modified triathlon brought out 211 people to swim in the W.C. Blair Recreation Centre pool, then cycle 20 kilometres and run five kilometres around the nearby streets.

“This is the first triathlon MEC has hosted across Canada,” explained local organizer Kathie Schellenberg. “Langley was the inaugural event. They plan to organize Sprint Tri’s in some of the other MEC stores in 2015.”

As people caught their breath after the competition, they provided some feedback to the organizers.

“People from all over the Lower Mainland attended and were impressed with the value and quality and the support from the community,” Schellenberg said. “There were many comments on how they enjoyed the cycling and running routes.”
