“There were some personal best times produced on the day. There were two Under-14 teams and three Individual Sprint Distance participants,” Valentine said.

“It was a perfect day at the race, despite the sun heating up the running course. From 6 year olds to 60 – age is not a barrier in the sport as Elizabeth King is challenging the community that age is nothing but numbers, if she can do it – anybody can.”

Elizabeth King, 60, teamed up with her grandsons; Aaron, 9, and Kaylan, 8, (150swim – 16.50mins/5km Cycle – 17mins/1.25km run – 9mins) and finished with a time of 42min 15sec.
