Maccabi triathlon moved to a Sunday afternoon on the 19th of February
11 adults and 3 kids braved the windy conditions at Heffron Park.
In the adult male race Craig Pager took the lead halfway through the bike leg after a mishap in the pool saw him over a minute behind the pack. He  powered through the ride and with an incredible run time of 17:50 won by over 3 minutes from Alan Kaplan who was very close to his PB for the course after a solid swim and ride. The ever improving Daniel Butt was officially 3rd as Norman Abel forgot to wear his timing chip was not given a time although was 3rd across the line.
Paul Ephron had a good swim and cycle time but didn’t finish the run as had some time commitments.
In the woman's race Laura Madeisky just piped Suzy Gelgert for the win after a solid run.
The Pager family as with the men's race cleaned up the kids races with good performances by Riley and Montana.
A good time was had by all. Looking forward to a good turnout in the next race in MARCH
