A grand total of 210 men, 24 women and 14 relay teams are registered to compete in TriKa’s third annual Olympic distance triathlon in Kapelle-op-den-Bos on Saturday July 25 (5:00pm). That adds up to 276 athletes, a new record. This is also the first year we’re adopting – by popular demand and thanks to some political goodwill – a non-drafting format.
