For the first time in three years weather did not interfere with the Door County Triathlon.
Nearly perfect water conditions Sunday helped all but 5 of the 688 athletes who entered the water complete the full 1.2-mile swim course. The swim was followed by a 56-mile bike ride and 13.1-mile run.
Vant Lammers was the fastest of the 571 athletes to complete the course, finishing in 4:10:36, almost 10 minutes ahead of second place Dustin Leutenegger.
Katie Horner paced the women with a time of 4:48:58, almost five minutes ahead of Rachel Mensch.
The 14th annual event was staged at Egg Harbor’s Murphy Park. The sprint triathlon and kids triathlon were held Saturday, attracting another 1,300 registrants.
