This year's Hell of the West boasts a sensational line up. With record temperatures in the lead up and predicted on race day, this year's racing is hotter than ever!
As the Australian and Queensland Long Course Championships, the Elite championships, and a Nissan State Series event, this year's race has attracted some of Australia's best.
From previous winner, Luke McKenzie, to current Ironman70.3 World Champion, Tim Reed, the men's race will see blistering competition. Lindsay Wall lines up with other exceptional contenders including Nicholas Hull and Clayton Fettell.
The women's field sees 3 time winner and Queenslander Sarah Crowley line up against Katey Gibb (now a Queenslander), and Lauren Parker (NSW). Katey and Lauren's impressive results will keep the pressure on Crowley.
Alongside the elite field, almost 700 athletes will push themselves through the unforgiving 2km swim, 80km bike and 20km run, to complete a race that has a unique Australian feel.
With current weather predictions at 42 for race day, and equally hot in the lead up to race day, remember to keep hydrated, look out for yourself and your fellow competitors & spectators.
