IRONMAN AUSTRIA
The Ironman Austria took place on Sunday, July 3 in Kärnten-Klagenfurt.
It is known as one of the most beautiful races in the world. With a breathtaking 3.8km swim course with scenery of the Wörthersee, a cycle of 180km through the green heart of Carinthia, and to finish a 42.2km run to the finish line in the heart of the city.
This is the mammoth task that club athlete Graham Butler took on in scorching heat in a time of 13:04:51.
A huge well done to Graham. What an achievement. You would be just tired of thinking of doing all that over 13 hours!
