For some people, an Ironman triathlon is not enough. Two of those crazy people are Alan Barry and Rick Minett, who both excelled in their first foray into Ultra-Ironman territory. Rick's event was a double Anvil, consisting of a 7.6 km swim, followed by a 360 km bike, and then an 84 km run. No sleep! Rick did an amazing 29:37:39 time, and despite being the oldest athlete in the event, was fourth overall!! Alan was even crazier - his event was the Triple Anvil, consisting of a 11.4 km swim, 540 km bike, and 126 km run. Alan had to stop at 84 km of run, at 58:27:27, making him an ultra double-Anvil finisher! Awesome job gents, we are so impressed!
