Kurnell #1

Kurnell #1 was run on Sunday and I went down to support our newbie HTC member Mike O'Keeffe. Mike is looking to go to NZ for Worlds next year and took on Kurnell as the start of his campaign.
In his first triathlon his time of 1:17:08 was a combination of S 13:41 B 38:48 R 24:38 for 2nd in the 60-64 age group. Being first out of the water for his age group, his swim saw him 4th out of all 50+ males and only headed by the winner of his age group late in the bike leg.
The changes to the course did lengthen the times for all competitors with a dry start for the swim off the beach at the far end of the run course and the ride back into the park having a hill hust before the turnaround at Solander Point then heading out to Captain Cook Drive. Rego tents etc have been switched to the other side of transition which centers the activity more for the run and providing good shade. The wind and water were calm and made for a wonderful morning's racing.
