MAKENA, Hawaii (AP) - Conrad Stoltz of South Africa and Shonny Vanlandingham of Colorado are the winners of the 15th Annual XTERRA World Championship off-road triathlon in Makena.

Stoltz, who turned 37 Saturday, completed the course in 2 hours, 31 minutes, 7 seconds. His finishing time Sunday was more than five minutes faster than his closest competitor.

It was his record fourth victory in the event, which is considered the world championship of off-road triathlons.

The 41-year-old Vanlandingham finished the course in 2 hours, 58 minutes and 20 seconds, winning her first women's XTERRA competition.

Both winners received $20,000.

The event included a 1-mile swim off Makena Beach, a 20-mile mountain bike up and down the lower slopes of Haleakala, and a 7-mile trail and beach run.
