Summer is over, long live summer

We released our latest newsletter.

So the school summer vacations are over but here in Banff summer is not finished. As the trails become quieter but the weather stays lovely, it is a great time to be active.

This weekend is the annual Subaru Triathlon so I thought this would be a good time to show you the line of triathletes and runners from Jack Willoughby. These are made from steel and come in either an oxidised bronze, a brushed silver look or the matt black.

I wondered. Would you use the hook rails for keys or medals, then again I suppose it depends on where you finish. If I entered it would still just be used for keys.

And, if you are interested.

A triathlon is a multiple-stage competition involving the completion of three continuous and sequential endurance disciplines. While many variations of the sport exist, triathlon, in its most popular form, involves swimming, cycling, and running in immediate succession over various distances. Triathletes compete for fastest overall course completion time, including timed “transitions” between the individual swim, cycle, and run components.

Triathlon is considered by some to have its beginnings in 1920s France and is attributed to a race during the 1920s–1930s that was called variously “Les trois sports”, “La Course des Debrouillards”, and “La course des Touche a Tout.” This race is held every year in France near Joinville-le-Pont, in Meulan and Poissy.

The first modern swim/bike/run event to be called a triathlon was held at Mission Bay, San Diego, California on September 25, 1974. The race was conceived and directed by Jack Johnstone and Don Shanahan, members of the San Diego Track Club, and was sponsored by the track club. 46 participants entered this event.
