  • Did the Sprint 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!
