Goondiwindi's Hell of the West lives up to its name

There’s not much you can say about Goondiwindi’s Hell of the West Triathlon that hasn’t already been said.

It’s a wonderful sporting and community event which appears to get bigger and better each year.

What becomes apparent the more you talk to the competitors is that all have taken a “journey” (as much as hate using that particular word) to make it to Goondiwindi, they all have a story about how they got here, their decision to come, the effort , the training, and then those final hours of the race itself.

We salute all of them, the Goondiwindi Tri Club and everyone else who helped make this one of the region’s truly great events.at final
