by Deb Shapira

Due to heavy rainfall at dawn on the morning of race day the call was made on arrival that the bike course was too dangerous to hold the bike portion of the event so it wasdecided to go ahead with a biathlon format consisting of a swim and run only. The early rain also appeared to cause many to stay away even though the sun came out and it was glorious sunshine for the duration of the event and the 11 adults and 9 juniors who particpated lapped it all up.

The seniors had a 750m swim and a 10km run while the juniors did their usual distances minus the bike portion.

The seniors men's race was won by Craig Pager with a stunning 38 min run and the women's was won by newcomer Suzy Cohen. It was also a big welcome back to Mike Evans.

In the juniors short race Devan Bloch won the boys while it was tight betweenTaya Simmons victorious over Zoe Pager. In the middle distance boys' race Leo Rubinstein had a narrow win over Brayden Bloch while Dana Rubinstein won the girls'.

Next race is on 22nd March and remember folks we go ahead rain or shine.
