Pretty sure Sunday's event is going to be remembered for a long, long
Big thanks to RD combo of Brett
Verity & Alex
Murdock for their quick thinking and relocation of
transition so that our event could go ahead.
This is one race that will be talked about fondly, given that it had some
very humorous moments, some high drama and also because it finished on
such a "feel good" note, and because it all happened on a
perfect dry season day!
It was great to welcome a number of new members who were
participating in their first event with us. We were also able to
share the enthusiasm of those completing their first ever triathlon and
also of those who took the opportunity to step up to the longer distance.
Big thumbs up to all competitors!!
Thanks again to Brett, Alex and all our other wonderful volunteers who
assisted on race day.
