Eurocoast Triathlon Club news

Eurocoast Triathlon Club members again came home with impressive results from the Peoplecare Wollongong Triathlon Festival held on Saturday, with two age group wins, and two third placings.

In the slightly shortened Olympic distance course (1.5km swim, 37km bike leg, 10km run) Sally Jeffrey was again the standout performer. Sally returned to her winning ways, with a victory of some 10 minutes from the second place getter. Sally finished in a time of 2:30:49, with individual discipline splits of 26:23, 1:13:58, and 47:09.

Brenton Cole stopped the clock at 2:49:02, with splits of 25:38, 1:24:13 and 54:00, finishing in the lower half of his age group.

Stephen Phipps also competed at this distance, in his preparation for the Ironman 70.3 at Port Macquarie in May. Stephen finished with a time of 2:52:06, with splits of 26:43, 1:18:15 and 1:01:18. This was enough for Stephen to be placed 15th in his age group.

In the Sprint distance (750m swim, 18.5km bike, 5km run) Dan Lloyd-Jones finished in an outstanding time of 1:02:12. This placed Dan first in his age group, and 3rd overall. The split times for Dan were 10:24, 30:28 and 18:08.

Dan has previously represented Australia in this distance, and it seems he wants to do it again.

Lachlan Brown also raced at this distance, and finished in a time of 1:12:14, placing him 3rd in his age group. Lachlan’s splits were 14:42, 31:56 and 21:30.

Adrian Connor finished with a time of 1:13:43, enough to also place him 3rd in his age group. Adrian had times of 13:13, 33:19 and 23:12.

From here, the focus of triathletes shifts to Port Macquarie for the 34th running of Ironman Australia, making it one of the worlds longest running Ironman events. This race involves a 3.8km swim, 180km bike leg, and finishes with a 42.2km marathon run. Also held in conjunction with this is Ironman 70.3, a half Ironman distance event, comprised of a 1.9km swim, 90km bike leg, and 21.1km run. A number of Eurocoast Triathlon Club members are fine tuning their preparation for these races.
