Rhode Island coachThe New England triathlon season came to a close this weekend,at the Gut Check Triathlon in Brewster Mass.  Jillian Schneider and Toby Bennett were there finishing off a great season.  Appropriately called the “Gut Check” It is the only race in which the race director gives you a “change of mind” option up until 7:00 am.  the morning of the race.  The race features cold water, steep hills on the bike, and difficult cliff side running trails paved with tree roots, and rocks in the back country of the Nickerson State Park. Oh, did I mention the 300 foot stair climb out of the swim to T1.

Jill finished her  season with a win for the women and placing 4th. overall in the race! in a time of 1:06:20  Toby topped off his season with a third place in his age group and 6th overall in a time of 1:08:44.  One more race is in store for these two, The Gansett half Marathon this coming weekend.
