Haugans dominate Fort St. John Triathlon events

Nicki was the big winner in the duathlon as she finished the race in 1:12:59 while Chris Haugan took second place, completing the course in 1:18:17.

Tate Haugan, meanwhile, had his time of 39:50 stand up to be the best result in both the junior short course competition and short course competition.

Nicki Haugan says that racing is always a friendly competition within the family whenever they enter into events.

“We’re always competitive, even just fun family rides turn into competition to see who can get out first,” Haugan says. “I actually thought [Chris] was going to get me because I did the math and I’m like ‘I can’t make up enough on the runs, because his bike is way faster than mine,’ but somehow I managed to squeak out today.”

Meanwhile, Chris attributes his wife’s win to her superior running skills.

“She’s a way better runner than I am, way better. I’m not a runner; all I do is ride bikes,” Chris explains.
