Great Job Greg and Benny - Canberra Half Ironman

Congratulations to Greg Walker and Benny Parson's on their outstanding races at the Canberra Half Ironman on the weekend.

Unfortunately due to some issues with the water in Canberra, the race was changed to a Duathlon consisting of a 4km Run, 90km Ride and 21km Run.

Greg had one of the fastest rides of the day and finished the race 148th overall and 28th in his age group.

Greg's total time for the race was:

17 min run, 2.19.31 ride and 1.45.23 run for a total time of 4 hours 21 minutes and 54 seconds

Benny also had a great race and again finished 2nd in his age group and has unofficially taken out the series, despite trying the put his bike shoes on while still wearing his sneakers during T1.

Benny's total time for the race was:

18.34 min run, 2.35.56 ride and 1.48.29 run for a total time of 4 hours, 43 minutes.

Congratulation also to CCTM founding members Karen Brown and Lee Taylor who also had great races at the Canberra Half Ironman.

Thanks CCTM,

I finished 12th in my age group with a time of 4 hours 53 mins. This result put me in second place in my age group for the Australian Half Ironman Series.

Lee finished 23rd in his ages group with a time of 4 hour 26 mins, putting him in 18th position for his age group in the series.

We would like to thanks all our friends for their support throughout the series. We look forward to catching up with everyone during Tassie's Tri season. :-)
