I reckon the costs of running the race with where it was held were too high relative to the number of participants such that it didn't make sense economically to continue to put it on, which is unfortunate, as it could have been developed into a pretty iconic event IMHO. Not too many opportunities to do a race in an urban setting like this where you have mountain and skyline views during the swim, get to rip around a park and then have a trot alongside the ocean.
I would love to see LifeSport fire up a series again, however, I reckon it is doubtful with the Dynamic Events having expanded a bit over the last couple of years.
Or convince Joe and Angie to do a Dynamic event at Jericho? The old course was awesome. Locals don't need the pizzaz of Stanley Park and finishing at Jack Poole plaza, which I'm sure cost a mint, we just want a decent course.
The being said, the numbers at Nanaimo looked pretty slim this year, so I wonder how long that race will last... I would love to see that race move to Julyish, after Dynamic's Oliver event and before Victoria... mid may for an open water triathlon event is pretty early and a bit of a gamble weather wise.
