    Team Triumphers Take on Mother Nature at the Richmond Road Race

    If you've ever raced the Richmond Road Race you know it is known for crazy weather and this year was no different.Congrats to all of the Team Triumphers who battled the snow and cold and the famous train blocking the route in Richmond last weekend. Julie, Sarah, and Deborah from the 70.3 Group Training Program met up at the race. Here is Deborah's report: This was the first time I had run the Richmond Road Race. It is a smaller venue, but very well organized. Parking is simple and free right at the school. The open gym made it easy for spectators to stay warm while we were out on the course. Bib pick-up on the morning of the event was very easy and super fast. Mother Nature decided she ....

  • Racing at Abu Dhabi Worlds

    Racing at Abu Dhabi Worlds

    In 2019 my husband and I qualified to go to the Age group Worlds for the Olympic/standard distance triathlon. The event was to be held in Edmonton in August 2020. I initially thought that going to Edmonton would be a bit boring compared to some of the other locations that World's had been at...well, thanks to Covid, the event got postponed for 2 years and moved to Abu Dhabi in November...kinda the opposite of Edmonton! We went with another couple from our neighborhood and when we got there, found out there were several other competitors from the Ottawa area, although most seemed to be from the UK and USA. We decided to go to the mid-east a bit early and acclimate to the time zone and ....

  • Stephanie Qualified for Worlds in Spain!!!!

    Stephanie Qualified for Worlds in Spain!!!!

    Stephanie trained hard to come back from managing a busy family while working as a surgeon at the hospital during the pandemic. It hasn't been easy for our athletes who registered and trained for races only to find out that the events were canceled. She was determined to make a comeback and crushed her goals in 2022 with a PB at the Mont Tremblant 70.3 and by qualifying for the World Championships Olympic Distance at the Esprit Triathlon. Many athletes ask me how do you get the training in when you have kids and a job. It's not easy but if you manage your time right and set realistic goals, anything is possible! I look forward to joining Stephanie, Simone Rose-Oliver and Sue Bennett ....
