Guam- It’s the event that starts of the Guam Triathlon Federation’s year of races. Considered a short course, the Stick N Back Triathlon was the first race for most local triathletes on island.
With minimal restrictions on age and equipment many newcomers and veterans race along side each other and tackle a 200m swim at the start of the race… After the athletes completed the first leg they jumped on the bikes for a flat 10K bike ride. Although the raods were wet the competitors breezed through that without problems. After that the racers tossed their bikes to the side and finished off the race with a 3K run.
14 year old Brandon Fell was the first to finish the race at 31 minutes and 49 seconds. Cory Morrison, who is also 14, followed him in the male division at 33 minutes and 49 seconds. Peter Lombard finished at 34 minutes and 17 seconds. Rachel Nichols was the first female to cross the fnish line at 39 minutes and 41 seconds. Dana Suess followed in at 40 minutes 24 seconds and Karen McMillan rounds out the females top three at 41 minutes and 9 seconds.
