The hugely popular Townsville Triathlon Festival was held this weekend along The Strand. Due to other commitments I could only compete in the team event on the Sunday so "Team Awesome" had its third crack at the event in as many years. Amelia swam, Stephen on bike and I brought us home in the run leg. We came 15th in the mix non-corporate group. Next year I'd like to have another go at the individual event - all I need to do is to learn to love swimming or at the very least tolerate it. I love the atmosphere of events like this and seeing so many people having a go and enjoying the beautiful environment that we are blessed with here in Townsville.
Over 130 competitors braved the chilly water on Sunday morning to clock up times to qualify for next months Magnetic Island Swim. Two teenages, Courtney Hayward and Josh Parish took out line honours for the womens and mens 5km event.
