Mangawhai Triathlon 2015






Every year in late summer my town hosts a triathlon which involves a 500m swim, a 20km cycle and then a 5k run through to the finish line. It's a little too advanced for my exercise level so I usually go along and take photos.

As you can see from the photos one contestant looks particularly triumphant as he nears the end, all the bikes were lined up in the campground nearby and lots of people waiting to cheer the entrants on as they came in. Well done to all those who competed in it.

Fun shots of a great event that whether you win or not just to compete is a great challenge ~ Happy Week to you,

I would definitely chose to be a photographer too but I admire the fit who provide the entertainment. :)

It looks like a lot of fun to be able to photograph it all - but definitely too hard for me to even walk it!

Exactly what I think too. Good comment :-)

That looks like quite the event! I have such respect for people who challenge themselves and take part in marathons, triathlons, etc.

Thanks, I'll join the ranks of the 'watchers' not the 'doers'.

Good for you to cheer for the participants. When I used to run in fun runs a long time ago, the cheering helped me keep going when I wanted to stop.
Take 25 to Hollister
