Warringah honoured our firefighting heroes at the January Bill Buckle Triathlon, raising $5,000 for the Red Cross Bushfire Appeal between race entry fees, support from our sponsors and money collected on the morning.
We were honoured to have teams of volunteers from Beacon Hill Rural Fire Service race with us and be interviewed following the race by the President about their experience fighting fires all over New South Wales.
The racing was almost as hot with Luke McLean taking out the long course event from Chris Wallace and Jack McPhee from Balmoral.
The women’s race saw Mathilde Batailler taking the honours from Miriam Orr and Maddie Morton.
The ever improving Laura Higgins chic’d our favourite physio Nathan Sculthorpe in the short course race. Second in the men’s race was Ben Schikora with youngster Jackson Quarrell wearing his father’s old race suit for a third place. Holly Willies was second female home from the always smiling Sally Peers.
Well done to everyone, around 80 competitors - results can be found here . Keep abreast of the fantastic photos from race day on our members Facebook page.
