The Mike Collingwood Meech Lake Triathlon is all about its volunteers. Mike Collingwood, Julia's swim coach, and former race director was a keen volunteer. Every weekend you would see him at 2 and sometimes 3 events lending a hand. For that reason and many more... we recognize our volunteers as much as our athletes as they are the pillar of what our community is built on. Great volunteers = Great races! 

I was so happy to see such a big turnout from Team Triumph this year. Whether you coordinated an area, baked treats, served food, parked cars, body marked, set-up, cleaned up, marshaled or did race kit pick-up you are all superstars for making this event the tremendous success it was. 

A HUGE thank you to Martin for coordinating all of the volunteers. This is a huge job that takes long hours of asking, begging and then plotting into different tasks, over a few weeks. He is always the first to arrive on site (5:10 AM this year) and the last to leave, and without him, we wouldn't be able to put on this event. Pauline also had a big job coordinating all of the baking and making sure that all of the supplies were ready to go. Thank YOU to both of you!!!

It is always nice to have Sue Martin-Bush at the race (pictured above) with her grand-daughter. Sue started this race 37 years ago when she was the Fitness Director at the OAC. There were 3 generations of Martin-Bush girls at the race and lots of her family: her daughter Kate, niece Melissa Cunningham and sister Karen Brennan. Thanks for being there!

Thank You to ALL of our Volunteers!
