Well the weather was pretty much perfect on Sunday for the 2018 edition of Challenge Melbourne and the ETPA athletes made the most of it with some great performances. This included lots of PBs. Along with this we had some podiums, first timers and comeback races.
Jason Sharp lead the way with a PB of over 30mins and a solid and consistent race day performance. With splits of 27mins, 2hrs 20min, and 1hr 35mins its safe to say he nailed it! 4hrs 28mins overall.. Well done and congrats Jase. Congrats too to Cam Atchinson, Shaun Miller, Mark Deagan. John Shiels, Marc primrose and to Penny Tomkinson and Carolyn Tonelli for snagging 3rd place along with their personal best times. Great effort by Brett Jacobson on his first race of this distance as well.
