The Tremaynes and Lanyons take on Ironman Busso!

We had 4 club members (The Tremaynes and Lanyons) racing on the weekend at Ironman Bussleton in WA. This is a full distance Ironman race of 3.8km swim, 180km ride and 42.1km run. In what is considered one of the most competitor friendly conditions on the worldwide Ironman calendar, mother nature decided she wanted to throw a spanner in the works! The conditions were brutal yesterday, with some of the worst swimming conditions imaginable. Tough winds, high swells and persistent rain made for some of the slowest swim times on the Ironman circuit and made for a tough outing for the rest of the day :( Our club members sure earned their Ironman Medals this weekend! Congrats to the 4 club members finishing a tough day and special mention to Karl Lanyon for completing his first Ironman – welcome to the club Karl!
