Despite very hot and extremely humid weather the Sunshine Coast event saw a fantastic turnout with 117 teams lining up at the start of the event. With a forecast for rain the cloud cover did give participants a bit of reprieve from the heat and all participants were in good spirits with the fastest team completing the course in 2h 31m and 46s. Due to unforeseen land access issues the kayak leg of the event had to be replaced by a mystery leg consisting of a mixed bike and run with one bike per team. Team members could choose to alternate riders or have one team member complete the leg on the bike while the other ran. Guy Andrews Adventure (Guy Andrews and Dean Cane) was the first team to cross the finish line and winners of the men’s teams. Tri Adventure Girls (Jan Leverton and Shan Mcgrath) took the win for the ladies and the mixed team winners were Kim Beckinsale and Gary Sutherland for team Mountain Designs. Thanks to a fantastic effort by the event volunteers all teams were cleared out and equipment packed before massive rainstorms hit the area. The next round of the series will be held in Mar at the Royal National Park with more information found in our Events section. Full results and photos from the weekend can be found here.
