Boily and Marchant take 31st K-Town Triathlon

Celebrating it’s 31st year, the K-Town Triathlon added two more names to its impressive list of champions.

The first edition of this Ontario classic started in 1984, and Kingston’s Cedric Boily and Newmarket’s Kristen Marchant, added their names to the impressive list of K-Town Triathlon champions on Sunday.

Former champions include: Simon Whitfield, Sharon Donnelly, Joanne King, Mark Bates, Richard Browne, Julie Curwin, Tereza Macel, Mike Neill, Jamie Cleveland, Rick Hellard, Nigel Gray, and Sean Bechtel.

Boily dominated the men’s race with top splits in all three segments. He led the swim (26:26), extended his lead during the bike (1:22:13), and closed with a 58:09 run in the heat to earn the overall victory in 2:47:33.

Cedric Boily wins the K-Town Long Course Triathlon (Sunday August 3, 2014).

No stranger to leading the swim, St. George’s Angela Quick led all women out of the waters of Kingston Harbour in 26:39 with Marchant in second, just 90 seconds later. Quick gained another 3 minutes on Marchant after the bike ride. Once on the run, Marchant made use of her run strength despite just getting over a stress fracture that prevented her from running during the first half of the season. Marchant posted the top run of 1:01:48 to finish in 3:05:40 and claim the women’s title. Ottawa’s Robyn Hardage rode the top split of 1:31:45, and ran 1:05:03 to pass Quick for second place.
