Just finished the swim portion of the triathlon

Cyswog ‘n’ Fun triathlon held in Nelson

Hundreds of competitors and their supporters filled Lakeside Park early Sunday morning for the annually held triathlon.



As is the August long weekend triathlon tradition, Lakeside Park beach and surrounding streets were transformed for the Cyswog ‘n’ Fun race Sunday morning.

Hundreds of competitors, their supporters and casual observers arrived at the park bright and early to be ready when the gun went off at 8 a.m.

Athletes moved through three consecutive stages — swim, bike and run — covering a total of 27.5 kilometres on the short course and 50.5 km on the long course.

The Nelson triathlon course, through the chilly lake and along hilly roads, is more challenging than most and all those that participated seemed proud of their efforts.
