Toth tops Curry in triathlon tustle

Chilliwackians Anthony Toth and Scott Curry waged an epic battle at the 2015 Cultus Lake Triathlon.

Anthony Toth topped a field of 116 at the 2015 Cultus Lake Triathlon.

The annual event was held Sunday.

Toth competed in the Olympic distance event, going toe-to-toe with fellow Chilliwackian Scott Curry. The men completed the swim stage within three seconds of each other. Toth exited the water first in 21:17 with Curry hot on his heels.

Curry erased the deficit in the bike stage, which he completed a whopping nine seconds faster than Toth (54:57 to 55:06).

The 10 kilometre run stage made the difference. While Toth covered the course in 37:11, Curry took 39:22.

Toth’s final time of 1:55:30 bested Curry’s 1:58:09 by less than three minutes.

Jaroslav Ploc (Squamish) placed third at 2:02:05.

Angela Froese was the top female and 12th fastest overall, finishing in 2:16:43.

Mike Como and Bruce Gerry were the oldest Chilliwackians in the field. Both competed in the mens’ 55-59 division. Como placed 19th overall at 2:22:14. Gerry placed 29th overall at 2:29:32.

The sprint-distance race saw North Vancouver native Mike Fertuck finish five-plus minutes ahead of the field with a time of 1:07:06.

Chilliwack’s Scott Street was the fastest local, finishing fourth in 1:13:26.
