08/08/2005: "2005 Beaton Classic"
Sunday morning was the second event in the weekend's double effort. This one was uncharted waters being a quadrathlon, and not something I had been training for. I've never raced a canoe before, so it was going to be an interesting event to say the least. The Beaton classic is a long standing tradition in Sudbury with many legends surrounding past events. The swim and canoe are on Lake Nepahwin, the bike on roads near Laurentian University, and the run is on some very hilly roads and rugged trails.
These are a few pictures Roy Hums took, and more can be found on the Sudbury cycling website (www.sudburycc.ca).
My splits were:
34:54.6 (1 mile swim plus 2x 800m run)
58:41.7 (30km bike, 30.7 km/h)
52.29.4 (4km paddle plus 2x 800m run)
1:02:51.7 (12km run, 5:14/km)
total:3:28:57.4 (6th place male Solo)
