Powerful stroke Ryder Mead

Kids enjoy the triathlon experience

More than 45 kids from across the Shuswap and Okanagan participated in the 12th annual Kids’ Try-a-Tri triathlon.

There was a buzz of energy at the SASCU Recreation Centre last Sunday as kids swam, cycled and ran in a kids’ triathlon.

More than 45 kids from across the Shuswap and Okanagan participated in the 12th annual Kids’ Try-a-Tri triathlon. The local athletes with the fastest times over the age of 14 were awarded the Kimmy Bews Memorial Award.

Julia Brown took home the award as the top local female athlete, while Stephen Moore was the top local male athlete.

Katy Calkins and Cole Maybee set the benchmark in their respective under-seven divisions.

Ryder Mead and Lucas Hansen tied for top spot in the boy’s 8-9 division while Sara Worton won the girls division.

In the 10-11 age division, Julianne Moore and Jacob Hepburn won their respective divisions.

Because the race was on the same day as the Terry Fox Run, organizers donated part of the race entry to the Terry Fox Foundation.
