Gold Coast Half Ironman Age Group Podiums and Results

By Karl Hayes

As usual there are a few age groupers that mix it up with the elite triathletes. Today saw Daniel MacPherson in the 18-24 age category place 18th overall, 25-29 year old Josh Jones was 28th overall, Xavier Coppock 21st overall from the 30-34 age group and the top 3 from the 40-44 age group finish 26th, 29th and 31st overall.

Mark Clough, Steven Brasch and Brett Urwin are three 40-44 year old age groupers who bother the guys and girls at the pointy end of the races they enter. These guys beat most of the other younger age groupers when they race. As someone who is about to do his first half ironman in October I was somewhat concerned by some of these times. I have four weeks left to pull a rabbit out of the proverbial hat and race these guys and their peers in the same age group.

Tamsyn Hayes (no known relation) 25-29 age group, Tarryn Whitmore from the 30-34 age group, Jessica Fleming 35-39 and Sally Taggart 40-44 all finished in the top 20 female athletes.
