730 participants agreed, perfect weather helped make for a perfect day at the 2015 running of the Quad Cities Triathlon.

“The temperature was just right, no wind. It was great,” Dave Steines of Mt. Vernon observed.

Women’s champ Daniela Williams heads out on the run.

The Quad Cities race attracts veterans and first-timers alike to its flat course and sprint distance. Race director Eric Sarno and his volunteers have race operations down to a science, getting a large number of participants through the race  as smooth as the surface of West Lake.

Daniela Williams of North Liberty, who notched three championships in 2014, won her first crown of 2015, topping the women’s race with a time of 1:10:49. Hometown favorite Seth Long won the men’s race in 1:05:52.

Sarno doesn’t give out awards for perfect attendance, but he did recognize two races who have competed at each of the sixteen Quad Cities events, Ann Vestle of Cedar Rapids, and Fred Hemsath of St. Joseph, Michigan.

Full results are here.
