A few weeks ago Triathlon Magazine Canada’s senior editor, Kevin Mackinnon, was asked to participate in a radio show panel to discuss the status of the sport. To follow up on that conversation, Mackinnon caught up with endurance sport expert Steve Fleck to explore the current state of triathlon here in Canada.

The explosion of long distance racing seems to have been a boon for the sport as a whole, but isn’t helping those smaller races attract more athletes. Listen in on Mackinnon and Fleck’s conversation.
