Halk, Murphy Win Subaru Caribbean Triathlon

Nov. 22, 2006 – The Subaru Caribbean Classic Triathlon was the final event of 2006 and produced two new winners. After a season that was dominated by repeat victories of Theresa Harper and Nate Faulkenberry, first time winners Bob Halk and Carol Murphy stepped up and took charge.
The Olympic Distance race was held on St. Croix at the Buccaneer Hotel. The distances fell between the shorter sprint races and the challenging St. Croix ironman 70.3, and featured a 1500-meter swim, 25-mile bike and a 6.2-mile run. The morning broke with perfect race conditions, cool temperatures and little wind when the 72 athletes were set off. Halk took command in the swim leg, besting his closest competitors, Jason Snow and Matt Crafts by over four minutes, and was never headed as he finished in 2:39:17. Snow was second in 2:43:04 and Crafts third in 2:47:12.
The womens side saw Elizabeth Armstrong carry a lead in both the swim and the bike, only to be run down by the late effort by Murphy. Murphys winning time was 3:06:07. Armstrong was second in 3:12:05. Arlene Watson was a closing third, in 3:12:49.
The relay winners Ryan Nelthropp, Robert Bumann and Marlon Williams all had the fastest legs of the day and finished in a blistering 2:11:41, winning by 20 minutes.
The 2007 Caribbean Auto Mart Triathlon Series will begin with the East End Sprint and Try-a-Tri in March.
