Be it a Tin-man, Sprint , Olympic, Long Course distance or the Big Kahuna, “KONA” bound, the Lakers train for and race them all. From juniors and newbies, to multiple World Champions and Ironman Legends, we all “Train together and Breath the same air”. It would be a hard to find a more inclusive club on the planet.
The Lakers Club, in being the largest club in S.A., still is a minnow in the National Clubs and World stage, but punches well above its weight in the World Ranking.
Being a consistent top Club in the Ironman TRICLUB Program, in the Asia Pacific Region Division II, with placement in the Top 5, Division II in World Ranking. The Lakers are to be seen in numbers in races in S.A., around Australia, and nearly every continent in the World.
In 2014 the Lakers World Ironman Championships Team at KONA-Hawaii, numbered an unprecedented, 17 member across all age groups. If not a record it was up there. (yet to be quantified). “The LAKERS are a Force, to be sure”
Aside for Triathlon, the LAKERS have diversified into criterium Cycle racing, MTB, Half Marathons, Marathons and Trail Ultra-Marathons. There is not a week in the calendar year that a “LAKER” is not competing somewhere ………… Come and join us, if your looking for “Inspiration”. You will never look back.
“If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And – which is more – you’ll be a Man, my son!”Rudyard Kipling (1895)
