In winning the October meeting of the Hallidays Point Social Triathlon Group, Natalie Carrier has set a new record time of 1:53:30 for the female division.

Her splits of 18:22 for the 1km ocean swim, 55:20 for the 20km mountain bike ride through state forests behind Tallwoods, and 39:48 for the 8km scenic run through Black Head and Red Head nature reserves and along Black Head beach gave her the only time under 2 hours for the event on the day.

First male home, and winner of the Over 65 division, was Mick Doney with a time of 2:00:35.

Events are held on the last Sunday of each month. The next event will be held on Sunday November 29. Entrants can join in all 3 legs, or just 1 or 2.  For those doing the swim leg, meet at the Black Head pool at 6.45am ready for a 7.00am start. Those doing just the bike and/or run should meet at the pool by 7.15am.

As this is a social group, there is no entry fee, but you enter at your own risk. All ages and levels of ability are welcome. Contact the co-ordinator Peter Ryall on 6559-2780 for further details.
