The 31st edition of Ironman Canada took place in Whistler for the first time on Sunday (Aug. 25), with more than 2,500 triathletes testing their endurance on a gruelling course set in the Sea to Sky corridor.
Participants were faced with a 3.8-kilometre swim in Alta Lake, a 180-km bike route that toured through the Callaghan and Pemberton valleys, and a 42.2-km run leg that featured two loops on Whistler's Valley Trail.
B.C.'s own Trevor Wurtele won the event, completing the course in eight hours, 39 minutes, 33 seconds.
Sunday's race saw a huge turnout of spectators, plus thousands more volunteers who provided enthusiastic support and ensured the event ran smoothly.
