With over 5000 competitors, ideal conditions graced Elwood beach for the start of the corporate triathlon. Unfortunately last minute changes were required when James sprained his ankle during his indoor soccer grand final 2 days before. Thanks must go to Chris, one of SMPC’s very own patients for filling in last minute – clearly all the treatment from Rakesh and pilates with Kate had you in fine form. Teamwork was evident from the outset with seamless transitions.
Andrew kicked things off with a stellar 45 min effort (400m swim, 10 km bike ride, 4 km run). Darren then posted a ripping 57 min in his first ever triathlon and Chris powered home in the longest (glory) leg in 54 min.
Overall we crossed the line in a combined team time of 2:37:12 to finish 130th out of 1142 teams. Awesome effort guys.
