The Rumor are true…. Whalers Cove Finale

It has been confirmed that the Final Club Tri event of the season held on the 29th of March will be at Whalers cove and not the usual Emu Point course.

For those who want to challenge themselves on offer will be a classic distance triathlon ( 1250m swim, 30km ride, 8km run) as well as the usual Sprint distance.

The Club is trying to get some alternate courses into the mix for a change of scenery (and competitor tactics) so please come down to support this fantastic initiative.

A BBQ will be held after the event so bring the family, enjoy fresh scenery and get some delicious sausage nutrition into our weary competitors.

Windy Wash

Club Tri 4 Saw a range of different race options for our competitors as the choppy windswept conditions made for a challenging swim leg. There was a swathe of new competitors for the short course with 12 on board and 2 teams. Many competitors also tried a mixture of both courses, going for the longer course option in their favoured legs showing great spirit to push themselves that little bit further.

Daniel Fisher was our short course champion with a strong run seeing him home over Michael O Donnell. The season standings have tightened right up with the Greay’s battling it out for short course honor’s.

Josh Marshall was our lone brave Male long course competitor while Dree Campbell and Lucy Anderton were flying the flag for the Females.

A full list of results and the standings table can both be found here

A big thankyou to 6 Degrees for their continued support in providing the spot prize. Zeb Campbell will be dining like a king as he continued his incredible hot streak in the raffle.

Look forward to seeing everyone on March 1st for the Albany Sprint, the marquee event of the calendar. It is an amazing day and definitely worth everyone getting down to.

Will also take this opportunity to update members and followers on the location for our final club tri to be held on 29th March. Unlike the previous Club Tri’s this season finale event is to be held at Whalers Cove, providing a refreshing change of scenery for regular competitors and a fantastic location for the battles for the season championship bragging rights.

Return of the Ironmen

Club tri 2 was a fantastic event with perfect conditions for triathlon on the day.

Long course honors in the men’s went to Jackson Pittman, an impressive time of 1:02:36, particularly fresh off the return from a grueling 10 hr Busselton Ironman performance.

Quick mention to the 2 other albany tri club regulars competing at the Ironman event, Nathan Small and Toby Le Fort. All 3 did Albany proud with incredible finish times at just over the 10hr mark. World championships may see 3 of Albany’s finest soon enough.

The Womens long course was a smaller field with Louisa Bell taking the win, improving on her Club Tri 1 time by over 2 minutes.

In the short course Victoria snatched victory with an excellent run after finishing the bike with Brydie right alongside her.
