Abu Dhabi Triathlon

Clint finishes 8 hours 52 mins!!! (time set for the Elites)

The inaugural Abu Dhabi International Triathlon was held here (obviously) on the weekend. There were team relays, a short course (1k/100k/10k) and Clint did the long course which was…

3 km swim in the lagoon off Emirates Palace

200 km cycle from the Palace, out to Saadiyat island and around the Yas Marina Circuit (formula 1 track)

20 km run along the Corniche out to the heritage village and back.

Clint had a great race, and was (according to him) a perfect training race in the lead up to the Frankfurt Ironman in July, he particularly enjoyed riding on the F1 race track! The kids and I missed the swim (sleeping took preference) but were there to see him finish the bike and do his run. He finished in 8 hours and 52 minutes so was thrilled with his time.
