The #fightingptsdvicpol campaign has always been about spreading awareness for #PTSD and #vicpol members and since October 2016 I have been using triathlon and running events to make this happen.
I have advertised that ways we can help reduce stress, anxiety is to take time out and exercise. I know at times it seems difficult to find motivation.
Just to keep myself honest for my own fitness and mental health.
I have paid my entry fee and entered the Geelong 70.3 Half ironman event.
This will be the third time I have raced in Geelong
2015 – Race time – 6hrs 7 min
2017 – Race time – 6hrs 39 mins
2020 – ?
The race consists of a 1.9 km swim, 90 km bike ride and finishes with a 21.1 km run and has a cut off time of 7hrs 30 mins
By all means its not an easy race although the reward when running down the red carpet to the finish line is amazing.
This is Victoria’s oldest IRONMAN 70.3 and is returning to the stunning Geelong foreshore on 23 February 2020. This scenic course offers a unique challenge set along Geelong’s spectacular waterfront and throughout the scenic countryside.
Swim in the clear waters of Corio Bay, pit yourself against the fast, challenging bike course and finish with a scenic run along the waterfront.
Hopefully I will see many supporters of the campaign either enter the event or come down to support.
Also available are team entries where you can decide who swims, rides and runs.
