On Sunday the 22nd of April the first OTB Off Road Triathlon took place at the picturesque Friedenhau Dam outside Windhoek, a perfect venue for Off Road events.
Many athletes turned up to tackle the tough route the organisers had prepared. Both the bike and the run sections had some big climbs which ensured that times would not be too fast.
The main event, a 1.1km swim, 21km bike and a 7.5km run was won by Paddy Murphy in a time of 01:55:53. Zoe Mitchell took top honours amongst the females with a time of 02:21:32.
All in all it was a great race and a great day out.
