Recommended Posts

Picture perfect swim conditions in Noosa today. Swim course record broken, 2.25. Last swimmer was 4.56, hopefully he's a good rider.

If it's anything like Brisbane up there, It'll be a shocker out on the bike.

Especially as the bike course went north to Gympie, so straight back into the strong wind to get back.

Do people really care about novelty events like this still. 

Its right up there with 12hr and 24 hr running events. 

About 50 people care.

This is the 5th running of this event and I'm pretty sure it's been perfect every time. Soooo Ali are you in for next year?

I won't be following every minute, but I think it's interesting to follow.

50 entrants, 48 finishers.  Easier than a half ironman.  😂

The distance is crazy. 

Yes they did it. 

But to be carried the last part and then fall before the FINISHLINE.  

Well. Did she finish under her own power?

i don’t think so. 

Mind you, 2 minutes later, she probably walked over the line so all good. 

 But......

Its not a good look.

Don't you have to qualify for UM?

I think it is just that you have to have completed an Ironman in last 12 months or something like that.

I know him and yep, very different but just does his thing... I can't remember which race I met him at, but the conversation about shoes was the catalyst. 

Had no idea he was doing Ultraman
