Port Mac 70.3 results

Port Mac 70.3 doubled as the Australian Age Group 70.3 Championships this year and BTC had a great showing of athletes to tough it out on the hilly course on a warm day.

Congratulations to Derek Mulhearn who had a brilliant race showing huge improvement and massive potential covering the tough course in 4:28:10 and earning himself a ticket to next years World 70.3 Champs on the Sunshine Coast.

Nic Pestalozzi had a great race to place fifth in the male 20-24 group and we had a great showing in the female 25-29 race with Andrea Pember in 4th and Lauren Wazzy Bourke in 8th. Nicole Pollitt showed her running prowess to power home to 5th in the 40-44 females in a brilliant time of 5:04:22.

A special mention to new BTC members Patty Ho and Tarik Celenck who completed their 70.3 races! Patty finished in 7:05:24 and Tarik finished in 6:13:27 in the male 25-29 age group. Awesome work Patty and Tarik; looking forwards to seeing you at some more BTC sessions and out there racing again this season.

Congratulations to all BTC members! If we missed anyone please let us know so we can add you to the results.
