Last night one of the iconic races in Europe was in action. No not the Tour de France, but Challenge Roth over the iron distance of 3.8 / 180 / 42.2.
SCTA club members, Jo, Matt and Will Carman lined up along with Carrie Lester. I know it hasn't been the ideal preparation for the Carman clan with Jo and Matty moving back home to Adelaide with Jo landing a great job, and with Will starting a new job as well on the Coast.
They got there in the end to finish one of the great races to tick off the bucket list.
Matt Carman - 9:51:30 - 43rd 30-34 Years Male Will Carman - 11:48:15 - 12th 20-24 Years Male Jo Carman - 11:50:41 - 38th 30-34 Years Female
It was great to see Carrie Lester have a great race to take 2nd on the podium and breaking the 9hr barrier in 8:53:09 and even more inspiring to see fellow Sunshine Coast resident Dave Dellow take out 3rd place in the Men's and breaking the 8hr barrier in 7:59:28 after a long road back from injury. Congrats very well deserved.
