Planting the seeds for Nelson’s annual triathlon

The local CIBC Wood Gundy office recently presented their sponsorship cheque to the Nelson Athletic Association

The local CIBC Wood Gundy office recently presented their sponsorship cheque to the Nelson Athletic Association, producers of Cyswog’n’Fun 2013. They have sponsored the event for the last 22 years and donations like this from long-term loyal sponsors help keep entry fees among the lowest in the province.

The 31st running of Nelson’s triathlon will occur on August 4 centred at beautiful Rotary Lakeside Park. There are two distances to choose from – the sprint covers 500 m swim, 22 km bike and 5 km run, while the Olympic goes 1500 m swim, 39 km bike and 10 km run. The only change this year is that the sprint swim will follow the same course as the Olympic (only 1/3 as far) and its start will be staggered five minutes later.

Registration is open – see trinelson.com to enter.
