Ca­ble Beach Triathlon

Broome Advertiser - - HAPPENINGS - Carly Laden

Sun­day morn­ings for most mean a time for re­lax­ation and re­flec­tion be­fore Mon­day rolls around.

But for al­most 70 ath­letes, Sun­day, Septem­ber 16, was a time to com­pete in the 2018 Lead­ing Edge Com­put­ers Ca­ble Beach Triathlon.

Ath­letes young and old braved the morn­ing sun to com­pete ei­ther in­di­vid­u­ally or in teams in one of three triathlon dis­tances.

There was the en­ticer which con­sisted of a 375m swim, a 10km ride and a 3km run, the sprint which con­sisted of a 750m swim, 20km ride and 5km run, and the Olympic dis­tance which in­cluded a 1500m swim, a 40km ride and a 10km run. The Triathlon was the cul­mi­na­tion of the Try Stars youth pro­gram, which saw chil­dren aged six to 12 put the skills they learned to the test in a mod­i­fied ver­sion of the race.
