WITH APOLOGIES FOR THE BELATED POST DUE TO TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES
Geoff Smith, making a welcome comeback after a prolonged injury that required surgery, and CoraLee Howes ( Starzomski) were the top male and female finishers at the 2016 Good Friday “home event” held at Harrington Sound School Car Park.
Impressing in his first ever triathlon (wearing a trisuit for the first time and on a road bike with no aerobars) was newcomer Kevin Ronaldson, better known as a footballer before his move to triathlon. Kevin, who is training for the Miami Ironman 70.3 later in the year, finished fourth overall.
Geoff was the fastest finisher in each of the three discipline with splits of 11 min 07 secs for the 750 meter swim , 29 :48 for the 20km bike ( a bit short of that distance) and 19:28 for the 4km run. He finished in 1 hr 23 secs, almost 5 minutes ahead of second placed Steve Smith ( 1 hr 05 mins 39 secs).
Cora Lee exited the water just behind Geoff to finish 3rd overall in 1:07:59
