Eleven brave souls dusted off their bikes, dragged on the bathers and pulled on the running shoes to take part in the Warrnambool Triathlon Club’s inaugural All Abilities Triathlon in Warrnambool on Saturday, March 1st.

Billed as a precursor to the Tri-Club’s annual Sufferfest, the All Abilities version was slightly less gruelling but challenging enough and required competitors to complete a 50 metre swim/wade, 200 metre bike/trike/wheel and a 250 metre run/walk or wheel.  Sam Beugalhole took out line honours on the day, putting in a fantastic effort in all three legs and was thrilled to be first across the line.  Sam’s Dad, Rob who accompanied his son around the course was delighted for Sam as well as pretty happy to be finished!

Other competitors who put in a fantastic performance to finish the in fine style were Drew Miller, Dom Mauribito, Sebastian Serra, Justin Dwyer, Harvey McCorkell, Christian Bailey, Loretta Thorpe Young. Troy Brown and last minute contenders, Phil Brown and Kev Nailon who joined in for the run/wheel leg.

The event was wonderfully supported by Tri-Club volunteers and family and friends and with a lot of positive feedback from participants, volunteers and club members we hope it will be the first of many. Congratulations everyone!
