Triathlon BC hosted the day at Grandview Heights Aquatic Centre on Sunday morning (Oct. 2) which had over 80 participants of all ages and athletic levels, with more than 30 spectators watching the day unfold.

The day’s activities were split up by age group. Participants would swim in the aquatics centre, then move on to biking, followed by running a route for as long as they would like before making their way over to the finish line.
