It was a great morning – new participants, young participants, old and even older participants all putting in and hopefully getting something in return.
Super effort boys and girls, entertaining and inspiring.
Thanks again to Brett, Emu Park SLS, the CWA and our course volunteers.
Thanks also to Bikes on High and Giant Rockhampton for their contributions to the random draw – a very nice way to wrap up our morning.
That’s the end of Emu Park for this season, but please check out “The GKI” that is happening on the 15th and 16th of June. And of course, there is the Yeppoon Triathlon Festival in late July – so keep up the training and keep in touch with what’s happening at Frogs. Don’t forget that Try2 do something most Sundays, so if you need some company and some peculiar training options check out the Try2 Facebook page.
I thoroughly enjoyed the event – I felt so much more comfortable in the pool that the open ocean! I think I might be ready to come and give an open water Tri a go now after today’s event.
58 participants in the Enticer Triathlon, 33 participants in the Sprint Triathlon, 2 participants in the Sprint Duathlon, 6 Teams in the Teams Enticer Triathlon and 5 Teams in the Teams Sprint Triathlon.
A massive thank you to all the event sponsors and supporters as well as all the volunteers on the day!
101 Juniors turned up at the South Rockhampton Pool to participate in the Triathlon. Swimming in the Pool, then riding around Sir Raymond Huish Drive and the Showgrounds and then a run along the river.
Juniors received a Fitzroy Frogs Water Bottle and Finishers Certificate.
It is always a treat to see people crossing the line with that glint of achievement in their eyes; and some of you with enough left in the tank for a huge smile.
Especially satisfying at this event was the number of first-timers. And a great turn out of a club regulars. 69 individuals and 5 teams participating on the day. Tannum is a gem of a venue, but the participants make the event.
77 athletes turned up at the Tannum Sand Tri. Testing conditions with a sweeping current making for challenging conditions for some swimmers. Those who were caught in the sweep had to fight hard compared to our strong swimmers – this made for an early open field.
