On Sunday, July 29 Kivi Park hosted another successful #SudburySwimRun Challenge in partnership with #CanaquaSports.
Congratulations to the top two men and women who qualified for the #Aquaticrunner Individual World Championship in Grado, Italy happening this fall.
Thank you to all our participants who traveled from all over Canada and the United States, all volunteers and sponsors! This race wouldn't be possible without all of you - @arenacanada, @campqualitynorthernontario, North Shore Search And Rescue, Chris' Independent Grocer, @hsf_sudbury and Vince Perdue from Sudbury Rocks Running Club.
@kivipark has partnered with Canaqua Sports to bring the #SwimRunChallenge to Sudbury on Sunday, July 29! After last year's success, this year's race has become a qualifying event for the @aquaticrunner_swimrun Individual World Championship being held in September in Grado, Italy.
The course is 19 kilometers in length and consists of four runs and three swims throughout #KiviPark and the newly opened #CrowleyLake. There is one basic rule; whatever you start with, you must finish with. If you choose to wear shoes or wetsuit, they must be on you at all times. Participants are allowed to use aids such as paddles and pull buoys but again, must travel with them at all times throughout the race.
You can still register as an individuals or teams online through www.canaquasports.com or on site beginning at 7:30AM.
For more information regarding the race please contact Ian Feldman at 416-617-3558 or email@example.com.
