After coming out of the water a bit behind he and his group wheeled in another group on the bike to stay just minutes back of the lead group. Kris then used his run speed to start moving up the pack passing runners like crazy. He had the 4 fastest run split of the day posting a 33:23 for the 10K. Kris overall time was 2:00:05 for the 6 lap hilly Kelowna course!

August 3/08, Canmore Triathlon!

Posting some brilliant times ahead of him Kris out ran the whole field, except his training buddy Kurt Woytiuk, and finished just out of the money in 8th place in a time of 1:55:50 and running the second fast run split of 34:06.
