Ultraman Canada 2014

Each year, after dinner, on the BC Holiday Monday we sit outside on our patio, in the warm evening sunshine and cheer home the Ultraman Canada competitors. Ultraman Canada is a 3 day, 514.5 km, individual endurance event. When the athletes are passing Prairie Valley Lodge they have completed a 10 km swim from Skaha Beach to Okanagan Falls, a 420 km bike ride from Skaha Marina to Princeton Arena, and are in the last km of a 84.3 km run from Princeton to the finish line at Memorial Park in Summerland. Volunteers man the route every few hundred metres and ensure the safety of the competitors. It is both uplifting and emotional to watch these athletes make their way to the finish line and each year we do our best to hoot and holler encouragement.
