Well done to Chris Culhane and Sam Dwyer on their efforts at Geelong Half Ironman on Sunday 09/02/14!

A word from Chris:

Toughest race I've ever done, managed to come 11th in my age group out of 23 or so. Leg times were 35:11, 3:15:46 (60 km/h winds) and 1:49:11, total time 5:47:42! Special thanks to Mum for coming down to watch, Yuval for the bike, Sam for inspiration (congrats today man), John for pushing me at running and Trevor for leading runmonash and being super supportive!

A word from Sam:
I won my age group and came 13th overall with 26 male pros racing. Came 10th in the pro category so that was really good, bike was slow but I didn’t taper off at all and was quite fatigued, I was about 10 minutes off the pro pace there. Ran a 1:26 half marathon in really tough conditions, the winner only ran 1:20. So things are looking good for Melbourne! Also I beat the guy who won my age group in Hawaii last year so that is also a good sign things are working.
