Members of the Cornwall Multi-Sport Club gathered at the river behind L’Héritage recently to get in some swim training before they compete in the upcoming CCH Triathlon to be held on Saturday (children's event) Aug. 22 and Sunday, Aug. 23 (adults’ event). In association with the Cornwall Community Hospital (formerly with Red Cross), the annual event aims to promote healthy living for the entire community. “With the addition of $4,400 in prize money this year, the event has attracted a number of pro/elite athletes to the race,” says Rob Allen, Cornwall Multi-Sports Club, of the leap in registration numbers, doubling from last year. Approximately 550 participants are expected to compete over the weekend. Anyone interested in participating can register on the day of the event.
