2014 Moreton Bay Grand Prix - June 14


Recommended Posts

I'm starting to plan this years race at Lakeside so here is an early date claimer. It's the week after Cairns and so far does not clash with any other events. Will be much the same as last year, except we are trying a Saturday afternoon race and to win the cash, you have to race two times and the combined times will determine the overall winners. Hope you can make it this year Lostkiwi

"you have to race two times and the combined times will determine the overall winners". Sorry maybe I'm going senile :smile1: Does this mean you have to race the short course then the long course? Which explains this? - Long Course & Short plus long $35.00 $45.00? Also what are the age groups? Sounds good as I was looking for a couple of Duathlons to do this winter.

I've put it in the diary mate! Good idea having the afternoon time I reckon. Means the mums and dads can go to Saturday morning sports with the kids and then race.

Hopefully I'll have some speed back in the legs by then.

Yes, to be in the running to win overall, you race the short race and then then the long. Will be no extra registration fee than if you just want to race the long one

Keen to do this James. We haven't set the date for our June duathlon yet, so I'll look at putting it on the week after. See if we can get a few from up here down for it. Good luck.

 

Just realised it's the week after Cairns! Not sure if I'll be able to pull up for it. See how I go.

You can do it Harts. Spartan raced two years ago the day after arriving home from Kona

Ran a 3:03 first km too...then got lapped on the bike.

 

James, if entries are struggling. Open up two new waves. Post IM & Post 70.3 waves first across the line picks up a couple of cartons to kick off the post IM Saturday night party.
