Saskatchewan triathletes must be getting a reputation for seeking the hardest races. Last year, we had two MM athletes do an extreme triathlon - this year, Bruce Moore finished the Canada Man in Lac Megantic on July 7.

Each stage tries to be more difficult than a typical Ironman. In the water, the athletes had to swim in the dark.

The bike was 180 km of thousands of meters of climbing, some well over 10% grade. The marathon length run finished with 12 km of just plain meanness. Previous athletes who have "run" it, reported "tangled roots, mud that sucked your shoes off, near vertical sections - all in the dark".

Bruce finished 4th in the M 60 division in a time of 19:08:18. Congratulations Bruce - that is truly a top lifetime achievement!
