Conditions prompted most to push themselves as there were 18 personal bests
This week’s event was conducted in windy conditions with a chill factor close to zero. It was these conditions that may have prompted most to push themselves to the limit as there were 18 personal best times and another three who ran within one second of their previous best times.
In the 2 kilometres it was a great night for the Richards family as Felicity, Max, Leo and Marcus all ran personal best times. Other families to show improvement were Sam and Olivia Cregan and Jade and Geoff Berry.
Then came Cameron Lunn, Cathy West, Isabella Lopresti, Erin Domeny, Millie Shanahan, Gillian Edwards, Nerrida Louttit and Nellie Johnson with excellent personal best times. The sole improve in the 3.5 kilometres was Steve Phipps.
In the 5 kilometres Bridget Lunn improved and, in the process, demonstrated to her brother Cameron, who was first home in the 2 kilometres, that the women in the family are the strongest.
The group was fortunate to have Dan Lloyd-Jones run as part of his preparation for the World Age Triathlon Championships to be held at the Gold Coast from September 12-16. Dan was selected in the Australian team to contest the Sprint Event in the 40-44 Age Group, following the Worlds held in Mexico in 2016.
