An annual triathlon at Wallaceburg District Secondary School has been cancelled for the year.

“I am so sorry to let you know that this year’s Tinman has been cancelled,” Nancy Schinkelshoek, a teacher at the school who had organized the event for several years.

“This year’s event was scheduled for May 16, 2019. For those looking to still give it a “tri”, there are similar triathlons hosted throughout the summer in Blue Water, Leamington and Windsor.”

Schinkelshoek said “given no other unforeseen circumstances”, the Tinman Triathlon should return next year on Thursday May 14, 2020.

The event had taken place each year for the last 25 years.
