City of the Sun Triathlon back: “This is great fun”

Cycling, swimming and running. The City of the Sun Triathlon in Heerhugowaard could be organized again after two years. The athletes did not sit still, but after such a long time participating in a competition was a challenge. “It is the first time for many athletes in a long time,” says organizer Maurice Wokke.

The triathlon was held last night for the eleventh time and is one eighth the length of a normal triathlon. That is equal to the distance used at the Paralympics. And if such a competition takes place in your ‘backyard’, you will of course participate, says Waardse Margret IJdema. “This is great fun”, says the best female para-triathlete in the Netherlands.
