Here’s Part One of our Hell of the West down through the years.
The Hell of the West has become synonymous with Goondiwindi.
Over the years thousands upon thousands of athletes and family and friends have poured into town.
And it just keeps getting bigger.
While Sunday is the “big day”, the Goondiwindi Triathlon Club is all set to turn it into something special. They are organising a range of events to suit the young, the not-so young, the experienced and the not.
It's going to be a Super Saturday.
There’s the “Inferno”: 5km Charity Run – A distance for all ages, shapes and sizes. “Running a 5km run is the perfect goal for those looking to enter their first race,” Kirsty said; 10km Charity Run – An achievable challenging distance for a beginner looking to move up from 5k’s and park-runs. 10k run is also a great distance for more experienced runners and is often used as a way of increasing endurance for longer distances.
All money raised goes to Care Goondiwindi and the PCYC.
There’s also the “Firestater Triathlon”. This event is 12 and overs who are keen to give triathlon a go.
“It lets people race in a supportive atmosphere amongst like-minded people,” Kirsty said.
“You can become part of the thrill and excitement of triathlon whilst gaining the absolute joy that comes with accomplishing a personal goal.”
And of course there’s also the usual Hellkids triathlon: Open to children aged from 7-11 yrs. This mini triathlon comprises of a swim, cycle and run to suit all children.
