  • Did the Olympic in 2019

    Loved the race, only thing I could suggest is including medals. Pay a fair bit for entry so it would be a good inclusion. However I will be back next year regardless!
  • Did the Olympic in 2019

    Always a great race.Only one thing coming out of T2 run along the first 500m on footpath the kids have to run through people blocking they way .this can be done better.Worried about trach people through jell rappers on the road this goes in the bay and the bay is full of plastic .Time Penalty should be given no need for this.This are like next level remarks but as you all know keep on aiming for higher.Thanks again it is a fantastic race.
