The first race of the Villawood Summer Series was held on Sunday morning. As with previous years, the first race of the season was a duathlon format of run-bike-run, and competitors seemed quite happy that there was no swim, with temperatures hovering around 4 degrees for the race start!
It soon warmed up though, no doubt aided by some fantastic performances by our athletes. Congratulations to everyone who braved the chilly temperatures!
The short course was won by Floyd Cartner and Clare Montgomery, with Team Webb taking out the team section. The long course was won by Jason Sim and Amy Holmes, pictured with the sponsors of Race 1, Anytime Fitness. The trainers at Anytime have been around the triathlon scene for years and have experience in strength and conditioning for running, riding and swimming. Be sure to head to their Kennington or Kangaroo Flat locations for all your gym and personal training needs.
Thanks must also go to our fantastic volunteers who made the race possible: Michael Gibbons, Mark Lees, Lyn Sebire, Roy Preece, Dugald MacKenzie, Trinity Sanderson, Jason Carroll, Greg Croft, Jay Sanderson and Vicki Lane.
