WTC proved we are a hearty bunch at the Square One Physio Triathlon in February. Cyclonic conditions didn’t deter 25 die-hard racers battling it out in a 3km, 6km and 9km run at North Head.
Slippery and boggy conditions on the track to Collins Beach ruled out the swim component of the race and as the Race Committee met on site to set up for a duathlon the wind continued to pick up, ruling out the cycle leg of the race as well.
Spirits were still high and some fancy dress gave the awesome volunteers plenty of giggles. Despite the solid rain, there were still plenty of smiles from competitors who claim it to be one of the most fun events they’ve competed in.
In the 3km race Alex Grell took the win while in the 6km race young gun Logan Campbell took the win from Pete Walker and physio Mitch Lockley. The women’s race had Laura Higgins a clear winner from Lauren Mason and Chloe Ovenstone. Chris Wallace was too dominant in the men’s 9km race taking the win from Brian Black and Sean Andrews while Mathilde Batailler took the win from Bonnie and Shannon.
Luke and Mathilde took out our club champs reimbursement while Shannon and Pete Walker won a 1hour massage from SquareOne Physio and Chris Harmer and Campbell Harrison won a $50 voucher from 99 bikes.
Our next race is the Mona Vale Dental Triathlon on March 9 – here’s hoping the weather gods are shining on us for another spectacular race.
