This is not a post I ever anticipated writing. The team are all fit, strong and keen and yet as of today we have abandoned The Great Australian Triathlon. We’ve been watching the global Covid 19 outbreak with trepidation and today we had to make the call to suspend our trip. Australian government restrictions would make it very hard for us to travel further, besides we feel that it would be socially irresponsible for us, in these days of quarantine and social isolation, to continue to travel through remote areas and come into contact with remote populations. This is not the way any of us wanted the trip to end and its safe to say we’re gutted to be abandoning a project we’ve put so much passion and work into over the last few years. However, we’re all very grateful to have had the opportunity to see so much of this beautiful country and met so many lovely people. On a personal level I’m also incredibly proud of everyone who has been involved in the project.
Stay safe everyone, keep dreaming of adventure and we’ll be in touch soon.
All the best,
Ben, JD and Dan.
