Cable Beach Triathlon
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.
