Ted Scott Marathon

Ted Scott Marathon has to be one of the high­lights of the club cal­en­dar as the one event that sees par­tic­i­pa­tion across mem­bers from all age group cat­e­gories.

The race start­ed with our U14’s through to Mas­ters who com­plete the full course which amounts to about a total of 9km of run­ning and 2km of swim­ming. The event start­ed with light winds but these became stronger as time went on, to make for chop­pi­er con­di­tions as the race pro­gressed.

The Nip­per Age Groups fol­lowed the start pack, com­plet­ing var­i­ous­ly dif­fer­ent cours­es accord­ing to their age. It’s a spec­tac­u­lar sight with all the coloured caps going up and down the course.

Spec­tac­u­lar too was Santa’s surf boat sweep­ing skills as he made a vis­it to our beau­ti­ful beach.

The over­all win­ner was Har­ry Jones and first female was Soraya Lee who was swim­ming Har­ry down in that long final swim mak­ing for an excit­ing fin­ish.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to all par­tic­i­pants who com­plet­ed their course and those who gave it a jol­ly good go!  Not only is this event one that show­cas­es all of our Age Groups active on the beach and water, but has a tremen­dous back up team in terms of organ­i­sa­tion with, set up on the beach and on the water, First Aid, water safe­ty, patrol officials,commentary and pack up.
