Folske repeats in SV Sprint Triathlon

46 individuals, 18 teams


Ketchum’s Grant Folske took off on the bicycle and run portions and became a repeat winner of the Sun Valley Sprint Triathlon Sunday.

Folske, 26, a North Dakotan who ran distances at Minnesota’s Moorhead College, led all the 46 individual finishers in the 19-mile endurance test with a final time of one hour, 10 minutes and 43 seconds.

He clocked the fastest 14-mile biking split among the individuals, 32:03, and the top running time for the 4.5-mile course, 27:12.

Folske had the fastest Sprint Triathlon winning time in the last seven years of the July event. He was nine minutes faster than men’s runner-up Sean Hallissey of Ketchum. Folske bettered his winning time from 2002 by three-and-a-half minutes.

The women’s winner, and a triathlon neophyte, was Boise’s Allison Hingtgen in 1.25:15. She edged Nicole Brown (1.26:05) and Heidi Wilt (1.26:55). Brown improved her Sprint Triathlon time by 4:32 and had the best biking split of all women, 37:40.

Besides the 46 individuals in the 18th annual event sponsored by Sun Valley Athletic Club, there were 18 teams for a total of 98 participants.

Fastest team of all was the mixed group of swimmer Diane Crumrine, biker Richard Feldman and runner Dave McBryant (1.13:43).

Feldman just blew away the bicyclists with a top time of 27:52. Michele Lowry had the best swimming split, 9:26, and Ryan Still clocked the fastest running split, 26:29.

Placing second in a tough Sun Valley Sprint Triathlon Mixed Teams category was the trio of, from left, professional golfer and Sunday cyclist David Duval, lightning-quick swimmer Michele Lowry and not-so-bad-himself runner Tim Mahoney. Express photo by Willy Cook

The race was dedicated to the memory of Tom Montgomery, a triathlete and past competitor in the Sprint Triathlon.

Terry Crawford, a good friend of Montgomery’s, did an excellent job organizing last weekend’s triathlon because race organizer Bill Cantrell of Sun Valley Athletic Club was recovering from knee surgery.
