Final score: Volunteers 102, Triathletes 67.
However, the organizers of the TD Wealth Port Hood Triathlon hope to see the athletes stage a major comeback next year.
And while this year’s numbers at Cape Breton’s only triathlon were down, the event was still deemed very successful.
“Our numbers were definitely down, but in talking to different people in the triathlon community, they are down all over,” said Port Hood Triathlon chairperson Yvonne MacDonald.
