Sunshine Coast Triathlon Academy / Protector Aluminium athletes were racing at Kingscliff Triathlon, Battle on the Balonne, ITU World Cup New Plymouth, Wishlist Charity Run and Allez Sport Cross Country # 1.
Also a massive thanks to all the Volunteers that helped at Triathlon Pink Sunshine Coast. 10 came and supported the event by giving up their time and the donation that SCTA will gain from it goes back into equipment for the Squad. A big thanks to Lucy Bowden, Rebecca Howell, Tania Gover, Anna Eaton, Jan Wanklyn, Wooldridge Family and Matthews Family.
Down at Kingscliff for the Triathlon where they had Olympic Distance and the Sprint Distance which doubled as the Queensland Sprint Champs where we had Ryan Marsh compete in the 13-15 Years where he took out 2nd place and was 5th Overall. Leading into the race Ryan was leading the Triathlon Queensland State Series in his category. In the Olympic Distance Brie Murphy had a great race to take out her category win in 25-29 Female.
In Taiwan, Brodie Gardner headed over for the Xterra Asia Pacific Championships. On a very tough course, Brodie had a great race to come away with 8th Place Elite Battle on the Balonne saw the return of SCTA Club Member Kierra Sansome for her first race in a while and she put it out there and had a great race to take the Female Race Title and some cash with a 7th Overall.
The first round of the Allez Sport Sunshine Coast Cross Country was run at the Corbould Park where the recent rain made it a true cross country with muddy and slippery conditions. Both Jericho Pogany and Jessica Lee had solid runs. While at the Wishlist 5km Run Charlotte Durand took the category win in senior Female and 2nd Female overall.
Across the ditch in NZ for the ITU World Cup New Plymouth saw SCTA Club Members Kelly Ann Perkins 11th Elite Female while Ryan Fisher was 16th Elite Male
