Australia 21 November: Canberra
Sunday saw the staging of the 14th annual Sri Chinmoy Triple Triathlon in Canberra. The Triple-Tri, as it is affectionately known, is a multi-sport, multi-terrain odyssey that test teams and indivduals over a stunning 150km course across 3 lakes and over 12 of the highest peaks in and and around the capital.
The race started at dawn with 12 hardy individuals tackling the first of 3 swims in Lake Ginnenderra.
Soon after the 'team athletes' entered the water too.
All the team riders were lined up, eagerly awaiting the arrival of their swimmer.
Hey Daddy, can I have a sip too?
A quick tag and off we go.
Our youngest swimmer, aged just nine-years old finished well ahead in the field.
They call Canberra the 'Bush Capital' because within just a few miles of Parliament House you can be in magnificent bushland like this, full of trails that would take a lifetime to fully explore.
Painted arrows on the ground show the way.
Runners from the World Harmony Run were on deck at all 8 transition zones to assist with timing and providing refreshments.
Another fast and furious tag at the next bike-run transition.
The course takes in many of the highest peaks surrounding the city, and the views, if you can stop to see them, are fantastic.
Back into the water at Lake Burley Griffin with Parliament House looming in the background.
Another rapid fire transition and then onto the second bike leg over Mt Stromolo, which is the most gruelling leg of the them all.
Another farm gate to clear. Just as well I don't have to lift my bike over it this time.
The sweet ecstasy of finishing.
A cooling off swim for our overall Champion, Trevor Fairhurst, who completed the whole course in an astounding 12:09:27
The race director, Prachar.
Smiles all round at the award presentations later that evening.
The senior team did very well! All the team members are over 70-years old. The oldest is 85! Amazing! Congratulations...
It was well after dark before the last competitor finally came in. An inspiring day for our 12 individuals, 96 teams and all the World Harmony Runners who assisted on the day. See the full results, and the race report for further details.
