Cairns Ironman 70.3 - we did it!

A super well done effort to all of our Tri-ActiV8 Cairns Triathletes who achieved their goals of completing a 70.3 & Ironman on 10 June 2017!  

Cairns Ironman

The V8 Tribe had a 5 month lead up to this epic event and Cairns delivered the magic!  

We were so excited to see our V8 triathletes push themselves to their limit in a 1.9km swim, 90km cycle & 21.1km run. The training was in the bank, the conditions were perfect, it was time to savour every moment and enjoy the journey.

We had 11 men and women compete in the 70.3 backing it up with cheering and antics for our three Ironman Ladies (and the other 1097 IM athletes) running out on course.  

A huge thanks to Mackay Cycles for sponsoring our Ironman Girls with the S-Works ION Helmets – everyone was able to cheer a little louder as the girls rode out to Port Douglas and back into Cairns!  These helmets made it easy to identify our three Ironman Ladies – remember – ‘be seen to be safe’ on the bike!

We are super pumped and can't wait for the next one...
