A High Note

As fall begins to descend onto the likes of Ontario and pretty much everywhere else in the northern hemisphere on Earth, the 2011 triathlon season draws to a close. One of the final races of the year on the fun2tri race calendar is the Lakeside KOS. This race is a great venue and always provides some great performances. This year was no exception. Fun2triers Will, Genny, Emma and Jonathon all had some great finishes to cap off another great year. Despite having to switch to the duathlon due to some rather chilly water temperatures, Jonathon managed to place an awesome 13th place overall. In the 14-15 category, the girls tore apart the competition with a first place finish for Genny and a silver for Emma. On the boys side of things Willem faced off against a strong boys field featuring an array of OSG qualifiers from around the province, and he didn't disapoint, topping the podium in first. Congrats guys on finishing off your season in great fashion and letting everyone know fun2tri will be a forced to be reckoned with come next summer.

Now that the tri's are mostly finished for the year, many of the team will turn their focus to the trails, as cross country season is already underway. Look for most of the high school athletes racing for their respective schools, as they try to make it to Ofsaa in early November. Updates about the ontario high school running races can usually be found on

As for winter training, swim season is underway so most of the crew is back in the pool, but a reminder to club athletes that Sunday runs in the afternoon are going to be taking place at Albion Hills Conservation Area. Check the blog or the facebook page on sunday morning for an update and exact details about the workout.

Good Luck in Your Training Everyone.

PS. Congrats to assistant coach Peter Zagar on completing the 50mile Centurion in Collingwood eariler today, hows the new bike Pete?

fun2tri at OSG 2012

The news is official! fun2tri has qualified 4 athletes to the 2012 Ontario Summer Games in triathlon. Athletes Aidan Zagar, Willem Quosai, Emma Barrett and Shaun Hancyz all qualified with podium performances at their respective qualifiers across the province. These athletes will compete at the games as members of their regional team, but will also represent fun2tri as their training team, of course. The rest of the eligable fun2triers will get another shot at qualifying next spring at the Guelph Lake I triathlon. Hopefully we can brong that number up to double the amount we have now. Once again, congrats to all those who have qualified already and good luck to those hoping to get to the games in the spring.

End of Year Party

Hey Everyone, Just an update on the party tonight. Weather permitting we will riding from the usual spot at Robert F Hall at 6 30. If not we will still have a gettogether at 7 00 at the party rooms at the hockey arena. This is the same room we rented for the drafting clinic last spring. Lorri will be sending out an email later today with some more exact directions and whatnot.

On another note, congratulations on all those who competed at their qualifying races for OSG 2012. Although the qulaifiers are not yet known officially, it looks like the club will have a great showing next summer at the games.
