It appears speed runs in Kitimat’s Chanin family as Cameron, Courtney and Caleb all finished first in their categories while little brother Carter put in a solid second at the first annual Kermode Kids Triathlon in Terrace.

The event took place under blue skies as 14 young athletes took up the challenge to swim, bike and run.

Distances varied based on age: the 8-9 years course was 100 metre swim, 5 km bike and 1km run; the 10-11 years was 200m swim, 5km bike, 2 km run; the 12-13 years was 300m swim, 10 km bike, 3 km run; and the 14-15 years was 400m swim, 10 km bike, 4 km run.

The swim took place at the Terrace Aquatic Centre as a timed event followed by a transition to the Northwest Community College where the athletes re-started for the bike and run sections.

Next on the triathlon schedule is the Barkman in Terrace on July 3 which includes triathlon for both individuals and teams in three distance formats, as well as the du-athlon (run-bike-run) for those athletes hesitant to brave the waters of Lakelse Lake.
