Carolyn and Graham’s Race Report – Guelph Triathlon

Posted  June 19, 2012  by  WCC Administrator

Guelph Lake Olympic Triathlon 2012 Race Report – Graham Dunn Prelude I was very concerned about the heat this year because a) the run course at Guelph can feel like running through a brush fire, depending on how keen the campers are with their BBQ activities and that there’s very little shade on the course […]

Kris’ first O-Cup Race – KW Classic!

Posted  June 11, 2012  by  WCC Administrator

My first O-Cup race I got to the registration around 7:30am, figured I’d be early, maybe even the first one there. I was mistaken. There were team tents everywhere, teams already on trainers warming up. I’ve never been to a real road race before so this was a little intimidating. Made it through registration, put […]
