Biscay and Kregar capture Ultraman World titles

The 29th Ultraman World Championship recently came to a wrap on the big island of Hawaii where its competitors covered a total distance of 320 miles (515 kilometers) – a 6.2 mile (10 K) open ocean swim, a 261.4 mile (421 K) bike ride, and a 52.4 mile (84 K) ultra-marathon run.

Hillary Biscay led the entire way. On the first day of the competition she swam 6.2 miles in 2:37:46, and biked 90 miles in 6:02:24, to sit in second place overall (8:40:10) after the first day. She extended her lead on day two, finishing the 170 mile bike ride in 8:26:45. With a comfortable 2 hour lead heading into day three’s 52.4 mile run, Biscay posted the second best run in the entire race (7:23:55) to completely dominate the women’s race in 24:30:50. Kelowna’s Kathleen Wood finished fifth in 33:15:23.
