Monday is the deadline to register online for the 25th annual St. Albert Triathlon on Aug. 10 at Fountain Park Recreation Centre.

The St. Albert Road Runners and Triathlon Club is hosting the Alberta Triathlon Association sanctioned race. It’s also part of the ATA’s five-race series (age group and elite) point ranking system.

Visit to enter the sprint distance (750-metre swim, 20K bike and 5K run), try-a-tri (250m swim, 10K bike and 2.5K run) or relay team event.

The confirmation list is expected to surpass the 300 mark by the deadline date. The registration totals include STARRT member Richard Roberts, a 70-plus age group competitor who has raced in every St. Albert Triathlon.

Last year’s triathlon featured 198 finishers in the sprint distance, 38 in the try-a-tri and nine sprint teams.

The sprint distance champion was Matt Dean in one hour and 15 seconds and the fastest female was Alexandra Gordichuk at 1:06:44 for sixth place overall.
