Another big day at the beach for the Oregon Dunes Triathlon and Duathlon! Congrats to everyone who raced. It is so nice to see all of you out there racing.

The following are results from the individual sprint and olympic distance triathlon events. I don’t believe we had anyone do the duathlon or relay this year. Maybe that is something we should consider for next year.

I just found out that Sean McGuire was also at Ironman 70.3 Oceanside this year. I haven’t heard anything about his race yet, but I managed to snag his splits and some pictures.

Stephen Payne took on his second long course event at Ironman 70.3 Oceanside. It seems that he has worked those pesky nutrition issues that he had in the past, and his race report made it sound like it was a good time. Congrats Stephen!
