Trevor Wurtele wins Challenge Geraardsbergen

Wurtele clocks 3:58 for the win after taking second place at Challenge Heilbronn just a couple weeks ago.

Trevor Wurtele claimed his first since 2013 this morning at the inaugural Challenge Geraardsbergen in South Flanders, Belgium. The Canadian clocked 3:58:05 for the half distance race, breaking down as 23:37 for the swim, 2:19:06 on the bike and a blazing fast 1:13:02 half-marathon.

Trevor and wife Heather Wurtele have been doing a “European tour” of racing this summer, hitting up several Challenge Family races along the way. The two recently both took second placeย at Challenge Heilbronn in Germany and Heather will take on the iconic Challenge Roth next weekend.
