Partipants compete in downpour at Coho Triathlon

Eighteen people swam, biked, and ran their way through a heavy downpour at Petersburg’s Coho Triathlon on Saturday. Heidi Cabral, the Parks and Recreation Supervisor, says that more people signed up for this year than last year despite the heavy rainfall. She says the crowd was highly energetic, cheering friends and family as they reached the finished line.

Participants were required to swim ten laps, bike ten miles, and run just over 2 1/2 miles. Carin Christenson was the fastest finisher with a time of one hour, eleven minutes and twenty six seconds. Grace Weller was a runner up, just one second behind Christenson.

For the top male, Lee Coyle finished the race at one hour, seventeen minutes and thirty nine seconds.
