RR Nationals held May 25 - 30, 2009
TRIATHLON - The few, the proud...the triathletes.
RRCUS Triathlon competitors are the unsung heroes of the National. After competing in Obedience and Conformation (judged by Diane Jacobsen of Calico Ridge), these well-rounded hounds slug it out in Lure Coursing for their third and final score.

By the time the winner is announced in the aftermath of the bunny chasing and slip-lead yanking, usually only a small knot of well-wishers and diehards remains.
Select, or runner-up, awards were very close this year, in some cases decided by as slim a margin as .25 of a point (out of a possible 300 points total).
Best In Triathlon was "Joie" (Freedom's Pride of Northstar, SC, RN, NAP, CGC, TT), pictured here trotting and coursing.
She is owned by Carol and Jerry Vesely, and co-owned and bred by Penny Weston.
