will undertake a 400 metre swim, 16km cycle and 4km run. Cook Islands Triathlon president Roland
Neururer said: “The race record is 51:14 set by Vanessa Palmer in 2009 which
will be hard to beat, but a great field this year means that competition at the
front will be fierce.”
Teams of two or
three are also welcome to enter. Ace team of Kelly Pick (swim and run) and Alyce
Edwards (cycle) smashed the team record last year setting a new fast time of 51:40
“This year’s field
will see a great race with a couple of mother daughter battles which will be wonderful
to see. Eyes will be on up and coming youngster Maya Postrzygacz who will be
pushing her mum, last year’s winner Adrianna Skurosz and other more seasoned
triathletes,” Neururer said.
“Strength on the
run will no doubt be a major factor for Tarina Moorfield fresh from running the
Aitutaki half marathon and Maria Rolleston who is a solid all-rounder.”
