Callum Millward Wins Colorado Ironman

Professional triathlete New Zealander Callum Millward has won the Ironman 70.3 Boulder in 3:46:47, a race he last won in 2012.

His competition included three-time British Olympian Tim Don and Colorado’s Ben Hoffman, who placed second at the 2014 Ironman World Championships.

“It’s funny how some days it’s really hard and some days it just kind of clicks. I didn’t feel like I extended myself, but I kept it pretty consistent throughout,” Millward said.

Millward pulled away from Don and Hoffman early in the run portion of the triathlon, which featured a 1.2-mile swim, a 56-mile bike ride and a 13.1-mile run. At the 12K mark of the run, Millward passed countryman Mark Bowstead, who ended up third with a time of 3:48:34, and then cruised to the championship.
