So for those of you that don’t know. 2012 marks the 30th anniversary of the Ironman Canada Triathlon. It will also be the last one (so I hear) But don’t despair, there is a new Triathlon coming to town…Challenge Penticton. This new race will be held the same weekend in 2013, that would have hosted the Ironman…Aug 25, 2013.
Here is the recent news story about it!
