2012 saw ECM’s first foray into the realm of a competitive corporate ironman team. Almost a sensational victory was achieved on the maiden entry, but when the marshals were not in place for the lead team (ECM), our runner went a little astray and by the time he was ‘re-routed’, the next runner had gone through, resulting in second place, a little disappointing when we knew we had done the work for the win.
2013 The team members from 2012 were very encouraged by their performance in 2012 so Eastern Cape Motors entered a few more teams.
We entered 5 enthusiastic teams. The Destroyers, Raptors, Avengers, Vipers and the Dominators.
All Team members were very keen and ‘ready to rock’.
The swimmers were fantastic! Richard chased closely by Jason, put in one of the most phenomenal swims the event has seen. This set in motion a fantastic cycle chase by John-Lee, Wesley and Francois, who had to fight off the opposition.
The fiery ECM runners literally ran like the wind, absolutely demolishing the opposition.
The ECM Avengers came in first, very closely followed by the ECM Destroyers.
A new course record for this scintillating race was set by the ECM Avengers which is indicative of the kind of pace the ECM Teams set.
ECM’s 5 teams finished in the top 8, a really spectacular performance by all our swimmers, cyclists & runners who gave of their very best.
A fantastic day of competition, a really fun event and a magnificent display of determination and teamwork in the face of stiff opposition.
Well done & congratulations to all our spirited athletes, we all look forward to Corporate Ironman 2014.
