Did the Olympic Distance in 2019
A great, well organised triathlon. Well briefed too! The bike course is generally flat, but with a couple of real stings on the tail. The run course is not easy and a bit weird where it winds through the trees, but no complaints.

Did the Sprint Distance in 2019
Excellent day! Beautiful scenery and well organised. Lake was really stunning and bike route pretty.
Did the Sprint Distance in 2018
This was my first triathlon race and i will definitely be entering future tri's! The pre race information was top notch and helped me to get through the event without a hitch. Only thing I wasn't warned about were the race number tattoos.... It was horrid to remove from my leg hair and i resulted in clipping the leg hair off to remove haha! :) A small price to pay for an epic race! Look forward to booking my next race with the let's do this team! Hurrah!
