2017 Buyer’s Guide

Triath­letes love their gear and there’s al­ways a number of in­no­va­tive new prod­ucts avail­able to start off the sea­son. We of­fer up some of the lat­est swim, bike and run­ning equip­ment you’ll want to check out when it comes to get­ting your­self kit­ted out for the 2017 sea­son. The age­less won­der from Wash­ing­ton State is the old­est per­son to ever fin­ish a full- dis­tance race. Kerry Hale pro­files the 86-year- old sport­ing icon and ex­plores her long-stand­ing Cana­dian con­nec­tion. It was sup­posed to be the cul­mi­na­tion of a train­ing jour­ney. In­stead, Ta­nia Haas’s race at Chal­lenge Wanaka turned into a near- death ex­pe­ri­ence. Haas re­counts her ex­pe­ri­ence and her even­tual re­turn to com­pe­ti­tion.
