A Hot Team Pacmen At The Busselton Ironman

Posted in: Company News on December 9th, 2009

Held in Busselton, just over two hours south of Perth, on Saturday 5 December 2009 the Busselton Ironman reached temperatures in the mid 30s, making the 3.8km swim, 180.2km ride and 42.2km run all the more daunting for the 1,309 individual and 110 team entrants. Of the 34 professionals who set out at 6am that morning, just 20 completed the course. Ouch!!

Our swimmer Warwick Greville started at 6.30am and had an excellent 3.8km swim around the Busselton jetty. Next off was Darren Wright on the 180km bike leg which he finished strongly in searing heat. It was 35deg C when Darren tagged with Steve Armstrong for the 42km run.

This was one hot event for team Pacmen, but we’ll be back in 2010 for sure.

Thanks to our family, friends and colleagues for your great support.
