Updated with results: Tri-It Triathlon in Langley City

Open-to-all-event draws more than 200

Most of the people who took part in the City of Langley 18th annual Tri-It Triathlon on Sunday at the Al Anderson Memorial Pool at 4949 207 St. were 14 or younger.

There were 208 participants this year, 127 youth competitors (5-14), 50 adult competitiors (15-59), seven classic competitors (60-plus) and eight relay teams swimming in the pool, then biking and running through the surrounding neighbourhood.

Competitors of all ages and abilities swim, bike and run different routes with varying degrees of difficulty, with the youngest swimmers paddling through 25 metres while older competitors have lengths of up to 400 metres.

Bike courses ranged from 1.1 km to 22, and runs ranged from 600 metres to 5.2 kilometres.

The event has categories for youth ages 5-14, adults, seniors, and relay teams of up to three people.

This year, the event had an new Adult/Classic/ Team Run route of 5.2KM along 53 avenue through the Nicomekl River pathways and back.

Prizes are awarded to the first place male and female participant in each age category.

The Tri-It event was first launched in 2000 by the City of Langley and the City firefighters as a fundraiser for the burn fund.

After about a decade, the firefighters moved on to other fund-raising initiatives and the City maintained the annual event as a community fun run.

All net proceeds of the Tri-It Triathlon are donated to KidSport Langley.
