Training for Excellence, with Excellent Training

IronMaori Half Ironman

UltraHumps switches from the Cameron Brown Award to Erin Baker Award

Hi blog followers and welcome to my final blog of this particular journey before I switch to another journey later that I come up with in consultation with Coach Ray. This seasons journey has seen me focus on the 3 events that make up the Iron Maori / Port of Tauranga Legend Series and the 5 events that make up the Cameron Brown Award. To refresh the memories the Iron Maori / Port of Tauranga Legend Series is made up of the Iron Maori Quarter Ironman in November; the Iron Maori Half Ironman in December; and the Port of Tauranga Enduro Half Ironman in January. These are 3 amazing events about promoting health and wellbeing and a great stepping stone into each other, and a great build into an Ironman if wanting to take that further step.
