Bill Completes Great Floridian Ultra Distance Triathlon in Clermont, Florida

Full Ironman, 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile cycling, 26.2 mile run

Our President & CEO Bill Redfern recently accomplished his goal of completing a full ironman competition in Clermont, Florida, after many months of gruelling training.

Of the race, Bill said the following:

“Completing this Ironman was a huge personal milestone – I did well and enjoyed the race very much. I had a great swim and fantastic cycling portion on what is known as one of the toughest triathlon courses in the country, climbing 4600 feet of elevation during the ride on non-stop hills. The photo attached is after just topping the infamous Sugarloaf Mountain with my heart rate maxed out! Unfortunately, in the first mile of the run, I had a knee injury which turned out to be a torn meniscus and possible stress fracture, which forced me to slow the pace considerably. Still, I finished and with a competitive time of 13:32, taking 3rd in my age group and 17th overall. My goal time was 11.5 hours so the knee cost me, but that time will have to wait for another year.”
