VanderLinden & Hansen are #BarrelmanTri 2016 Champions

The third annual Skechers Performance Niagara Falls Barrelman Triathlon presented by Recharge With Milk, was our biggest and best ever. Thanks to all of you who were there to support us as a participant, volunteer, or spectator.

There is no better triathlon swim venue than the Welland International Flatwater Centre. It’s both spectator and athlete friendly with the calm swim conditions and guide wires underwater. And check out that atmosphere.

The bike course is flat and fast, with plenty of volunteer support, Tim from Velofix with some extra backup on the course, and some unique features like riding through the Townline Tunnel to start the ride over to Niagara Falls.

Then you’ve got the most spectacular run course waiting for you, where you get the opportunity to run past Niagara Falls twice!

Once you made it to the finish line, you had this bling waiting for you. How did you like those sparkles on the bubbles?

This area just past the finish is a popular spot to visit too.

Congrats to Michelle Shrives, our final finisher for 2016.
