In other Tri news a huge well done to our chairman Russ who
competed the Norseman Ironman, a gruelling event where you jump
into a Norweigan lake off a car ferry to complete the swim, the run
at the end is up a mountain, where if you havent reached a certain
height you finish on a lower route. Russ made the time and
finished earning a world reknowned Black T-shirt!
