It sure is.
These will be your track markers on the day, mostly on the bike stage as there are a few tracks that criss cross over each other, and we don't want you taking the wrong turn! In addition to these, make sure you check out the 13km Bike Course video which shows you exactly where the track goes.
I don't imagine it'll be difficult to stay on course for the run stages, but if I can find some stakes then I'll probably put a few out with these 'ere markers on them. It'll be more for encouragement than direction I guess, but whatever helps!
Hope training is going well :)
As the name suggests, Icebreaker are getting involved with the Quickie on the Beach in April and we're stoked to have their support.
For you as an entrant this means you've got some really sweet prizes in the form of Icebreaker product up for grabs. We'll have something pretty bloody special for the winners of each category as well as Icebreaker spot prizes handed out on the day, so if nothing else, there's a great reason to go hard!
As soon as we've got the exact prize list through we'll chuck it up online for all to see. But for now, make sure you're getting out there for some runs and bike rides - enjoy the nice weather while it's still around! Eat well and we'll blog again soon :)
Here it is, The Icebreaker Quickie on the Beach 13km mountain bike stage! Geez it looks good too, and totally accomplishable with little training! Well, I think so anyway. But please do some training, you'll get way more out of it if you do.
I'm undecided if I'm going to record a couple videos for the run components of the event, it's a there and back run up the beach, so you can't really get lost. We'll see how we go. But anyway, I hope this video helps and gives you a clear shot of what to expect come race day. There are heaps of tracks criss crossing in Bottle Lake Forest Park and based on last event (Quickie in the Forest) it seemed no matter how well I thought I had sign posted the tracks for both the runs and the bike, a few people still took a slight wrong turn along the way. So, with that in mind please watch this video and familiarise yo'self!
Right, as you were. Do spread the word about The Icebreaker Quickie on the Beach, I'd love for it to go off and continue to grow. Any questions, sing out :)
