IMG-20160410-WA0052It was an incredible day of endurance in PE this past weekend as our Embark athletes battled out hot weather at this years IRONMAN. From the early 7am start right through to the fireworks at midnight it was an enthralling day of painful tears and happy tears! We had a 100% completion rate, every single athlete getting a medal! So the long weekends, the early mornings and late evenings all paid off in the end. It was amazing to see all the hard work coming together on the day! Thumbs up and smiles and of course those dark times fluctuate through out the day. And then, before you know it, you have that medal around your neck!  The awards evening and after party was fantastic. Our triathlon club, Atlantic Triathlon Club (ATC) winning the club award in their division. So we ended up getting a lot of our athletes onto the podium! 🙂

Later this year we will start training for IRONMAN again, giving us extra time to train and getting in a few extra months than usual. We are looking at taking more girls for next years race, as there was only 13% woman in the field. SO if you are keen to do an IRONMAN, (and obviously have some sort of endurance base) then get in touch with us and come and join us for the triathlon season that culminates in IRONMAN PE!

Congratulation to the all the Embark triathletes that are now IRON-MEN!!
