Triathaletes triumph in Comox

A kids triathlon brings great results for local athletes

The 10 and 11 year-old mini triathlon relay team competed in the recent Comox Tri-K Triathlon held on Sunday, May 24.

The North Island Road Runners placed first in their division.

The team comprised of swimmer; Madison Grenier, cyclist; Ethan Hunt from Port McNeill and runner Tianna Freund of Port Hardy.

Their total time was 29:34. Swim distance was 150m (six lengths), bike 5km, run 2km.

This was Madison Grenier’s eighth triathlon, but the first time that she didn’t compete as an individual doing all the events herself.

This was a first-time experience for Ethan and Tianna and before we left the event they were already asking to sign up next year.

The Comox Tri-K Triathlon is a very organized and well run triathlon.

This was their 32nd year for the event.

Jaylon Grenier also placed first in his division of 15-17 years.

He is 15 years old. His total time was 41:38. Swim distance was 300m (12 lengths), bike 10km, run 3km.

Jaylon also received the Paul Ervin Memorial Trophy for the top junior male triathlete 17 years and under.
