The inaugural Subaru Saskatoon Triathlon is set to go tomorrow morning in Saskatoon, and it will be the biggest triathlon event the province of Saskatchewan has even seen.
The professional race features the Chase Format where tomorrow the women will get a 12:3o head start. Race favourites Magali Tisseyre and Brent McMahon both finished second at Ironman 70.3 Mont-Tremblant last weekend and look forward to challenging each other to take top spot tomorrow.
