The smiles were wide and bright and the weather held off at the 19th Woody’s Triathlon.

More than 330 kids from ages 5-19 packed the Michener Centre to participate in the annual Kids of Steel Race.

The athletes started in the pool, transitioned to a short bike and finished the day with a run.

Sunday is the junior, sprint and try-a-tri races.
