Another weekend of racing from Sunshine Coast Triathlon Academy / Protector Aluminium athletes that were in action at Queensland Athletics Cross Country Champs at Maleny, Brisbane Marathon Run Festival and Alpe D'heuz Triathlon.
Saturday saw the running of the Queensland Cross Country Champs at Maleny, the venue for the National Champs on 25th August. SCTA Junior Scholarship Holders, Peyton Craig and Macey Roberts had their first outings as this years recipients. Both raced well with Peyton 9th and Macey 13th.
The other Juniors of Mia Wooldridge (5th), Heidi Craig (8th), Ryan Marsh (14th) And Erin Wooldridge (14th) all ran very well on a very hilly and tough course. With an afternoon start time the temps hit around the 28 degree mark making the conditions even tougher.
On Sunday Orla Gallagher lined up in the Half Marathon as part of the Brisbane Marathon Run Festival. She took out bragging rights beating her fellow work colleagues across the line with a 26th Place 30-39. In the 10km we had Selena Corcoran finish in 42nd Place 40-49.
Arguably one of the toughest races on the circuit the famous Alpe D'heuz Triathlon was held on Thursday over a 2.2km sim, 118km Cycle - including the famous Alpe D'huez hill climb and finish off with a 20km run. SCTA Club Member Carrie Lester used it as a final hit out before EmbrunMan on 15th august. Carrie had a great day out with a 3rd Place in Pro Female.
