North Powder — The Ski Anthony Lakes Triathlon proved successful March 16 despite competitors having to battle their way through soft snow.

The first leg of the race was a 3-kilometer run. Competitors found it difficult to obtain secure footing, making for a long slog.

After pumping up the last hill to the bike exchange, racers snagged up their bikes and attempted pedaling against the soft, fresh-fallen snow. Comical and entertaining for spectators, the bike leg was by far the most treacherous for racers. Most ran along side of, or carried their bikes through the second leg.

With the worst over, triathletes quickly geared up in their cross country ski equipment and headed on the last 3k of the inaugural Winter Triathlon at Ski Anthony Lakes.

Crossing the finish line first was Ron Bennett, with a time of 59.40

The fastest woman was Ski Anthony Lake’s own Dona Houtz with a time of 114.32.

Plans are already under way for the second annual Ski Anthony Lakes Winter Triathlon next spring.

Sponsors of this year’s race were The Mountain Works, Hammer Gel, Unicel, Safeway, Union County Tourism, Visit Baker and Ski Anthony Lakes.
