It takes a LOT for me to post over a wedding picture, especially one from a magazine... (hint hint).. but this is so cool I must share it:
We are thrilled to announce the launch of the ORCA Karapiro Half Ironman which will be run on the 14th November 2009.
There are a number of fantastic and unique features about this event that will appeal to competitors of all abilities including -
1. Swim leg down the course for the World Rowing Championships, AWESOME! Umm- HELLS YEAH!!!!!!
2. Bike leg around Maungatautari, NZ’s largest inland native wildlife reserve( www.maungatrust.org ) that is a 3400 hectare forested extinct volcano situated beside Lake Karapiro. And the bike leg finishes in the main street of Cambridge! WOW. I can just imagine rolling into Cambridge at the end!
3. Run leg over 4 laps in the township of Cambridge, 4 x up the main street that will be closed to traffic, lots of spectators, loads of atmosphere, lots of cafes and bars for the spectators to blob out in and great for post race recovery sessions!
4. Lots of event categories – winners trophies in 5 year age groups for men and women, individuals and open teams – mixed, male and female!
Phillip and I are thinking team entry... Who's with us??
