Shed 2 Triathlon and Duathlon Series Race #3
(Westshore New Course)

Due to heavy rainfall before this event and in the interest of Health and Safety we made the decision to move the event (from Pandora Pond) to our contingency to Westshore. This course had been in the making since October 2018 as a contingency.
The feedback we received has been positive but our main issue was high winds. Well done to all of you that took part and battled the elements and thank you to all those that helped setup and pack up, your help was really appreciated.

Scott Clinic Ironkids 3rd February 2019
We had a great turn out on the day, it was great to see so many of the up and coming athletes of our future being involved in the event.
The weather was perfect race conditions and there was a smile on the faces of not only the budding athletes participating in the events but also the parents and family who were their to support them.
Due to the amount of events we manage each year and the time on our volunteers we have limited this event to one this year. We have received some great feedback.
Thank you to our volunteers and Parents who came down and got involved with the event.
