Beautiful day for the Trinona Triathlon

See also

Sunday was the sixth annual Trinona Triathlon in Winona, Minnesota. The sun was shining, the winds were calm, and it was a perfect day for a race. Over 650 people showed up to race in either the sprint distance (0.25 mile swim, 11 mile bike, 3.1 mile run) or the international distance (0.93 mile swim, 24.8 mile bike, 6.2 mile run).

In the international race, Heather Lendway (St. Paul) led wire-to-wire. She set a new course record with her 2:09:50 performance, which included a bike split of 1:06:24 - extra impressive because of the 1.2 mile climb up Garvin Heights Road. Second in the female race was Cathy Yndestad (Rosemount) with a 2:15:53, and third was Diane Hankee (Hugo) with a 2:19:29.

In the men's race, David Thompson (St. Paul) took his 5th consecutive win at Trinona with a 1:54:58 performance. Adam Bohach (La Crosse) tried to catch Thompson on the run, but his 32:02 10K split wasn't enough. Bohach finished over 2 minutes back in 1:57:10. Third went to Dan Hedgecock (St. Paul) in 1:58:30 - the final athlete to break 2 hours.
