A big weekend of racing on home turf at the Sunshine Coast 70.3, saw some great results from the Sunshine Coast Triathlon Academy / Protector Aluminium Athletes and Club Members.
Weather conditions made for some interesting conditions out on the course, especially the cycle leg, when the rain scuds hit, made visibility very hard to see in front of you, wet roads and strong winds at times. when the sun came out, so did the humidity. But all Athletes and Club Members were strong across the board and we did see some great results.
Max Quirk 3rd (18-24) had a great race for his first 70.3, Angela Vinnicombe 6th (40-44) had a solid day out in the conditions, with Norm Marsh 11th (55-59) was happy to get to the start line after a broken collar bone saw him out for several months. In the Teams Zsolt Dallos (Cycle) and Margo Mackintosh (run) combined in the Mixed Teams to be the fastest Team overall and also secured the Mixed Team Win, while Janelle McCosker (Swim) was 9th in Mixed Teams.
SCTA Club Members had some great performances with Matthew Wolstencroft 1st (50-54), Michael Hooper 3rd (25-29), Paul Marchant 4th (25-29) and Lachlan Kerin 7th (Pro Male)
On Saturday 5th September Sam McClarron lined up in the Queensland Athletics Cross Country Championships where he finished 5th 12 Years Boys 3000m
