Ironman Race Report
Ironman Maple Valley 70.3 race report from Jeni and Will (part of our medical team)
Some wind, some rain (at times pouring!) Definetly not a 60 degree flat course! Lake Wilderness for the swim, then a scenic and hilly bike course through the Green River gorge and the community of Maple Valley, finishing with a relatively flat run on local paths, finishing back at the lake.
1.2 mi swim, 56 mi bike, 13.1 mi run
Jeni – 6:27.56
Will – 8:11.36 (29 minute PR after fixing 2 flat tires during bike)
We were both grateful to be back to racing, and happy with our days and finishes. Throughout the day HY/Steens mantra resonated with both of is- ‘give baloons’ encouraging others really does help get you through the rough parts. Thank you 🤗
