Race gallery: 25th Annual Great White North Triathlon
Fitting with this weekend’s patriotic theme, the iconic Great White North triathlon, one Canada’s oldest multisport races, saw a successful 25th annual running. Canadian triathlon superstars such as Heather Fuhr have raced GWN, making it a bucket-list race for many age-groupers. On Sunday, over 800 athletes from across the country as well as the United States lined up for this classic Canadian race, which takes place in Stoney Plain, Alberta against the backdrop of beautiful prairie scenery.
Penticton’s Jen Annett and Portland, Oregon’s Christopher Bagg took the pro titles, finishing the half distance course in 4:29:17 and 4;04:01 respectively. Age-grouper Christina Charles and pro Amy VanTassell rounded out the women’s podium in second and third, while James Cook and Nathan Champness finished second and third for the men.
