Sad, but true. Ironman for the time being will not be in Penticton, but M2 was well represented in this seemingly final installment up North. For all that M2 has endured in Canada, he is happy to see PR's and Ironman first timers perform so well on that hallowed course.
Great races all around to our athletes:
Sara Peschel passed nearly a 1000 people with a strong performance finishing at 12:57:22
Jessica Yin finished in 8th in her AG with an amazing race for 11:11:55
Mario Maturo in just under the 12 hour mark for his first Ironman with 11:58:28
Andrew Castaldi had a well balanced race for a PR at 10:37:22
Gary Rafferty dropped under 10:30 in his first IM for 10:25:51
Enjoy some rest and have a safe trip home.
Now we'll have to see if they keep M2's monument around for Challenge next year.
