Here are Kent Richardson and Julia Hawley’s race reports from this Sunday 7th September’s race in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada.

KENT :

Hey, great race course for the bike. It was not so technical but it was still hard. The run was almost a 10 miler with very very steep hills. I had a great swim and after bike was entering transition 5 or 6 place overall but lost places on the run, but very happy all in all 11 overall.

JULIA : 

Dave, I had a great race and managed to get a Maui world championship spot!! I was 2nd female overall going in to run but I knew my run was not where it should be as I have been injured since Hawaii last year and not done any racing or run training until now! It was an xterra with a very long and hard run. Bit of a cold start to the day and it was a rough swim. 

The excitement on the trip was seeing 2 bears on the bike course when we did this a couple of days before the race. The first scared us but we kept riding, the 2nd we turned around and found the nearest road and got off the trail!!
