Neil Lang of Halifax, competing in the male 25-to-29 category, was third overall with a time of 2:16:35.
Adam Aldred of Yarmouth County was first in the “aquabike” race, part of the Aylesford event, where participants only do the swim and bike. Aldred led the way with an overall time of 1:34:21, including 23:54 for the swim and 1:09:38 for the bike. He was in the 40-44-year-old division.
