Top marks for athletes at Walnut Grove triathlon

Athletes fare well in sprint race

A handful of Surrey and White Rock triathletes clocked good times at the Walnut Grove Triathlon last weekend in Langley.

White Rock’s Sarah Baker placed fifth overall – and first out of 18 athletes in her female 20-29 year old division – after clocking an overall time of one hour, five minutes and 49 seconds.

The event was a sprint triathlon, which began with a 750-m swim at the Walnut Grove Community Centre pool, then continued with an 18-km bike ride and finished with a five-km run.

Also finishing in the top-10 – out of 151 total competitors – was Surrey resident Serge Score, who finished the course in 1:06:35.

The event was won by Chilliwack’s Robert Johnson, who crossed the line in a blistering 59:44; he was the only participant to finish the race in under one hour.

Surrey’s Kelly Dumont was the next fastest local finisher, placing 22nd with a time of 1:14:50 – third out of 28 in the female 30-39 division – while Eric Fernhout was next across the line, in 1:16:49.

Finishing in a time of 1:17:04, South Surrey’s Collette Semeniuk was 26th overall, but won her age class (40-49).

Competing in the male 40-49 division, Surrey’s Kevin Klock was sixth among the 21 athletes in that division.
