IM703DBN Survey - Winter Solstice – Knysna Big 5 Entries for a steal!

Ironman 70.3 On-Line Survey

Seems like it wasn’t a good weekend for Ironman swims.  Both Ironman 70.3 Durban and Luxembourg swims were cancelled, due to rough seas and a flooding river, respectively.  And, by all accounts a, good call.   This didn’t hamper the enthusiasm of participants and ATC’ers delivered some brilliant performances, including top age grouper performances under the males and ladies!  If you did the event, please complete our quick survey.  It is very short but you can elaborate as much as you like:
This feedback, along with our Members’ results will be published next week, in our monthly newsletter.
