Image saying "Huntsman World Senior Games triathlon results"

The 2018 Huntsman World Senior Games triathlon, a competition for men, women, and relay teams ages 50 or better, was held on Saturday, Oct. 13 in St. George, Utah.

The race started with a 450-meter outdoor pool swim at Summit Athletic Club, followed by a 20K (12.5-mile) bike, and finished with a 5K (3.1-mile) run/walk. Of the 47 women who signed up for the individual competition, 37 toed the start line and crossed the finish — many to earn medals or ribbons. All who completed the triathlon qualified for the 2019 National Senior Games held next June in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The four women’s relay teams competed as well as a number of men’s and mixed teams. Next year at the national games, the triathlon relay will be an “open” sport, meaning no qualification is necessary to enter and compete.

Many of the women listed below in bold type competed earlier in the week in the four-day Cycling competition (5K hill climb, 20K or 40K time trial, criterium, and 50K or 37K road race).

Action and award photos will be posted as they become available. Results source: Huntsman World Senior Games
