I did my first Kids of Steel triathlon in 1990 after watching Mark Allen and Dave Scott go head-to-head on Kona. I completed my Bucket List Ironman for my 40th birthday back in 2018 in Wisconsin.  By being in the Saskatoon Triathlon Club I hope to pay it forward for all the support the tri community has provided me.

I started training for triathlons at age 69. While many of my peers were giving up on their bodies. I thought instead I would challenge mine. I am a long-term road biker and cross-country skier. I am now 74 and have done 4 outdoor sprint triathlons and an indoor one.  I very much enjoy the triathlon community and look forward to working with the STCI board to keep it strong.

I found my love for triathlon through the Just Tri-It program! Since starting with triathlon I have found myself participating in a variety of training programs and events. My favourite thing about the sport is how many welcoming and encouraging people I have had the opportunity to meet and train within the community.

HeyYo!! I competed in my first triathlon doing the swim as part of a team in the Frank Dunn Triathlon at 19 years old. Since then, I’ve completed the Frank Dunn solo four times! I haven’t raced for a while, but I have been more active in volunteering and officiating. A highlight moment for me was running across the Frank Dunn finish line with my 8-year-old son beside me!!

Marketing Coordinator

I grew up running and swimming but I didn’t find my passion for triathlon until 2023 when I decided I would challenge myself to train to complete the Frank Dunn Triathlon. I quickly fell in love with the community and the many ways this sport has improved my life. I am looking forward to more races,  training events, and opportunities to build the triathlon community in Saskatoon!

Nicole Shoaf


A work colleague was the swim coach of the Just Tri-It program and she encouraged me to join in the spring of 2015. It was a rough start but the group encouragement really helped me pull through. I grew to love all three sports and soon participated in longer events – but what I really discovered was a love of organizing triathlon events! 

My favourite part of triathlon is the Just Tri-It program. I’m so fortunate to be able to work with amazing volunteers who help bring a safe atmosphere for women to join triathlon, to push and to succeed. Even better is that those women take a new sense of accomplishment and volunteerism back into their personal lives and the wider Saskatoon community.

Just Tri-It was where my wild road of life collided with the Saskatoon Triathlon Club. Awesome women supporting and challenging each other to get out there and embrace the powerfulness of our bodies. Since then I have participated in triathlon events, become more committed than ever to my health and fitness, invited friends and colleagues into this magical sport and joined the board. I am grateful for STCI!

I got involved in triathlon through my dear friend and training partner, Leanne. Although I was extremely hesitant and nervous in the beginning, this dissolved upon realizing this is one of the kindest, most supportive, and most encouraging communities I’ve come across yet. The motto is that you are good, fast, and fit enough, exactly as you are.
