Sri-Chimnoy multi-sport challenge, Jindabyne, March 2015

35 teams and 3 solo athletes converged upon the beautiful lake Jindabyne in March this year for the 9th annual Sri Chinmoy Multi-Sport Classic. The Jindabyne Multi-Sport Classic is a fun and social event for amateur and experienced racers alike. The 12 legs present a variety of challenge that may test your skill (for instance some highly technical mountain bike riding) or endurance (a 2.5km swim). But there are also easier legs such as a 5km run and a 5.5 km paddle. The course treats participants to various sites in and around Lake Jindabyne.
ANUMC were ably represented by a team of six avid adventurers. Tim Crockford, James Painting, Laure Gauthiez Putallaz, Pierre-Dominique Putallaz, Marco Ernst and Kristen Walker swam, paddled, ran and mountain-biked their way through the 12 legs to complete this endurance challenge. The team worked together throughout the day to race against the cut-off time and finish in 12:18:48. The whole team pulled together to ensure smooth transitions between the legs and to provide invaluable moral support. In the end we gained a sense of achievement and team spirit.
Keep an eye on the trip calendar for next year’s Multi-Sport challenge!
