Top 5 tight with wurf about to ride thru them early. Working it out probably a 13 min lead off the bike.

It’s fine on a perfect road surface like that.

Gotta say, credit where it is due, the coverage has been pretty good, especially when you can cast it from the iPad into the tv and enjoy it on the big screen.

Wurf having a spew at 40k. Still 5 minutes up on timbo

That spew and rough guts at the end definitely costs Wurf the all time overall event record: I think he finished about 15 seconds behind Kiru’s 1992 Forster time. It also probably cost him a sub 2:49 run split BUT overall what an impressive performance.

On the right day Wurf CAN crack 8hrs on that course ... Congratulations!

Congrats to Tim Reed as well: a 2:44 is probably on par with Kopko’s 2:45 and Shortis’s 2002 run of 2:46:09 at Forster - both of which included T2 (Shortis’s dad actually timed Jason’s split from when he came out of the change tent as a 2:44:30ish that day) ...

Ok so I appreciate the lengths they are going to to bring the coverage but having a moto following the lead runner on a narrow footpath seems a bit rediculous and a lot dangerous.

What course are they claiming the record on? The course has changed a lot of times over the years. I think the first year was the hardest having to run out to the light house.

Three possibilities:

 

1. Current Port Mac course configuration,  I think;

2. All time Port Mac record; and

3. (Just outside) all time Ironman Australia Event record (Pauli Kiru’s 1992 8:06:09?).

Agree with one & two. The third is a bit of a stretch. 

Its a totally different location with the same name. 

Was mentioned in dispatches by Welshie earlier in the day. Forster is always the true benchmark. Everybody knows that!

Well Ironman is claiming it as the Ironman Australia record.

If course change and locations don’t really matter then didn’t Alexander go 7.57 back in 2012 in Melbourne?  Last time I looked that was also in Australia 😂. With Port Mac when they removed the run up the hill (2x?) it became a completely different course. Swim is also completely different to what it was - no idea if that made it quicker or slower. I guess ‘race record’ just sounds good. 

Great result though.

Although it’s a bit like Grandpa’s axe, it’s still the oldest and original Ironman in Australia.

That's the bit I struggle with. Busso is currently the oldest running IM in Australia. 

Foster was the original and first Ironman. But that event is no longer on. They created a new race in Port Mac. With it's own history, course etc. 

So if they stop running Ironman Port Mac & start a new race in Geelong will that then become Ironman Australia?

Is there somewhere to watch the finish line at Port live?  The link on Facebook Live was excellent but they have now switched over to IM Arizona, so I was wondering if there was another way of watching it.
