Another good collection of results from this past weekend!

Pugwash 5K

Jeremy Tracey PB'd yet again, running 22:20, and placing 21st out of 215 runners- hard to believe he only started running last year!  Nolan Tracey who ran with us at the Classic took almost 4 minutes off his personal best!  Nolan's brothers also had great races- but more importantly they wrote H+P on their chests/arms for the race! haha

Jeremy and the boys post-race!

Kevin Grotheer continues to impress despite his lack of training.  He finished 23rd overall and 3rd in his AG!

H+P Racing: July 20th-21st, 2013

It was a quiet weekend for running, but a huge weekend for triathlon for a number of H+P athletes.  Here are the results:

Toronto Triathlon Festival (National Championships)

Florian Ong hammering on the bike

Florian Ong did quite well despite only starting to swim last fall.  He came in 17th place in his age group, averaged well over 38km/h on the bike and ran a low-38 minute 10K.

Kristen Marchant (who trained with us last summer) also had an amazing, break-through performance.  She actually WON the event, posting an epic sub-38 minute 10K.  Kristen is now the female National Champion!

Belwood Triathlon

Luke showed once again that despite training for Ironman, there is still lots of speed hidden in those legs.  He ended up winning his AG, placing 3rd overall, and actually being the first age-grouper to cross the line!  Full results.

Blue Water Triathlon

Ed Cyr really impressed in one of his final tune-up races before Ironman MTB.  He reached a new personal best on the 40K bike (averaging just under 41km/h) and 10K run off the bike (just over 37 minutes).  He also placed 3rd overall, great work! Click for full results.

The Shrigley family all showed up for the 4K with some HILARIOUS costumes (see below).  Brandon placed 3rd in his AG.  Nicole, Ed and Candy (1st in her AG) all came within 1 minute of each other! Results.

OUS 50K Series
Once again, Dave Rutherford impresses- this time with his overall win of the OUS 50K series (2012)!  He also was hammering away at the Limberlost 56K this weekend when he was forced to stop due to injury- my guess is he will be back in no time.
