Saturday, 13 October 2007 Hawaii Ironman
Mark Travill (11:32:55) and Janet Miller (14:48:32 hr) meet all their expectations in their first Hawaii Ironman on a very hot, windy Kona day. Mark swam 1:08:42/3.8k – rode 6:03:42/180k – run 4:09:40/42.2k and Janet swam 1:09:33/3.8k – rode 7:44:13/180k – run 5:33:43/42.2k.

Monday, 8 October 2007 The Melbourne Marathon
Danny Hawksworth 2:40:25. A great top 20 finish and a narrow victory over the leading lady!
Josie Gioffre 4:43:27. Considering the first 21.1k was 2:06 hr and a PB for Josie this was an amazing effort. It also suggests a little more relaxed 2:10-2:12 could see Josie run 4:30 hr.

Half Marathon
Aaron Heaney 1:46 hr. Aaron was entered in the marathon but did the 21.1k as his long run due to sickness over the last few weeks so it was an excellent “long run”!
Stephen Gowers 2:03 hr. Considering this was a first up effort and leaving home at 5am Stephen ran well and is now aiming for a sub 2 hr. This race is a great base for someone heading into the Triathlon season.

Karl Augustin 40:01 but sub 40 actually (3rd AG)

Sunday, 6 May 2007 Busselton Half Ironman
Despite many things from minor injury to work committments, from doing the event for the first time to race incidents the average result for the group at the Busselton Half Ironman was 20 minutes better than predicted. While up to 10 minutes of this time could be attributed to the perfect conditions the rest is a tribute to the athletes.

Wednesday, 18 April 2007 Hawaii Ironman 2007
Ironman Mark Travill now joins Hawaii bound EPS IM'er Janet Miller. Despite improving 35 minutes on his 2006 debut time and recording a time that would have won his age group in last year Mark was just one slot from a 2007 roll down. Justice was done when he gained a lottery slot.

Darren Schonwille 11:31 hour. A great first up result for someone who is time challenged due to running a landscaping business.
Nerissa Stafford DNF had major bike problems and did not get to run (her strength) at all.
