The Subaru Western Triathlon Series is excited to announce that the Subaru Saskatoon Triathlon Chase will be nationally televised by TSN, Canada’s Sports Leader. The event will feature a stellar pro field in an exciting “chase” format in this Olympic Distance race where the professional women’s field will be given a head start in front of the men based on a calculated formula. This will create an exciting “race to the finish line” with both female and male racers competing to see who will cross the line first. The 2013 event featured an incredible battle where Canadian two-time Olympian Brent McMahon (pictured left) caught IRONMAN® Champion Magali Tisseyre with only 800m remaining, edging her by just 14 seconds after 2 hours of racing. Approximately 600 amateur athletes of all ages and abilities will also participate in the events of varying distances.
