Another big weekend of racing for the Sunshine Coast Triathlon Academy / Protector Aluminium Athletes and Club Members in Action at Moreton Bay Triathlon And Running Festival, Byron Bay Triathlon, Mudjimba Charity Swim and Uni Sport Uni Games.
Done at Moreton Bay for the Triathlon And Run Festival saw perfect conditions for racing with the Run on Saturday Afternoon and Triathlon on Sunday. In the Run we had Gary and Chloe Turner competing in the 5km which saw Gary 1st (70+) and Chloe 3rd (30-39). The 1.5km saw Billie Elsum have a great run to be first Female overall and 4th Overall.
Sunday morning saw a spectacular sunrise just before the Classic Distance started over the 2/60/15. We had both Emily Barrett 1st (20-24) and Lauren Murphy 2nd (40-44) under direct instructions to stick to IM Race Pace as it was a perfect lead in to Cairns Ironman in 4 weeks time. Perfect opportunity to test out the nutrition and race plans in place for the big dance on 6th June. Both ladies had great races. Emily Donker 1st (25-29) and 2nd Female Overall had a very solid race, while John Sheridan did his first long distance race to finish 14th (50-54). SCTA Club Member Matt Wolstencroft 1st (50-54) executed a great race as to Paul Marchant 2nd (25-29) and 4th Overall
In the Club Distance over 1/30/7.5 saw the longest distance that Sophie Burger had ever raced over with a 1st (14-15) and fastest Female , she had a great race and has showed a massive forward progression, not just in racing, but also in her preparation for races. A massive development in the past 10 months since moving to SCTA. It was great to see the smile back on Brett Stalley's face with a strong race in taking out 1st (55-59). Rachel James 4th (35-39) has been progressing well over the past few months and we saw that hard work reaping its benefits.
In the Enticer over 300/10/2.5, it was a bit of fun times amongst the ladies to see who would take the bragging rights with the fastest time. Rebecca Howell took the honors with 1st (25-29), Torah Rose 1st (16-19) with Jorja Matthews 2nd (16-19) and shouting the coffees, or was that donuts!!! Jayden James 4th (U/14) continues to improve with each race this season seeing his best for last and just missing the podium, while another strong performance for Addison Houslip 5th (U/14). Flinders Crawford and Mackenzie Matthews had strong races and finished with smiles on their faces.
At Byron Bay Triathlon we had Margo Mackintosh in great form with 1st (35-39) and the fastest female overall in perfect conditions for racing.
Perfect conditions for the Mudjimba Charity Swim saw Gaye Ottagalli swim the 11km solo. In the 3km swim around Old Women Island and part saw strong swims from both Janelle McCosker 1st (60-69) and Liz Vadas 1st (40-49).
