Last year’s event, the 15th Freycinet Challenge was a great success.
Well over 500 competitors from Tasmania and Victoria competed over 2 days of running, paddling, road cycling and mountain biking, totalling almost 185km!
The sun was shining, the day 2 paddle could not have been any better, and the race was spectacular!
Mark Padgett took out the overall Open race for the 2 days in an exceptional 8 hours, 21 minutes and 54 seconds!
Alex Hunt followed closely behind, but could not quite catch Mark, trailing by 6 minutes and 23 seconds by the time they crossed the finish line.
The women’s competition was closer still, with everything riding on the final crossing of the line in the run leg. Would it be Rowena? Not quite, as Peri crossed the line with an overall lead of 2 minutes and 3 seconds. Her final time being 10 hours, 13 minutes and 14 seconds.
Teams overall winners were the Hazards with a total time of 7 Hours, 33 minutes and 37 seconds.
Overall results can be found HERE.
A full results listing will be placed on the results page in excel format within the day.
Thank you to all who participated, and the continuous efforts of the volunteers and support crew such as SES, Police, SLSC and the Sponsors. Without you all, we would not have this event.
