Auckland Half Ironman 2010

20th March 2011

A swimmer tests the water before race start.

A clear, bright, and blisteringly hot morning at Maraetai Beach, and that’s before the race even started.  Conditions would only get hotter as the race progressed.  Well done to all that competed, especially to the female competitor who headed out for her third and final lap of the run while prize-giving was underway, approximately 8 hours after race start.

Competitors begin the swim leg and head out towards the first buoy.

The chase packs hits the shore several minutes behind the leaders.
