Over the weekend, Shaw and Partners participated in the Coolangatta Gold Ironman event; a trial of endurance including an ocean swim, board paddle, surf ski and soft sand run legs.

 

A team of four high calibre athletes competed in the relay race, representing Shaw and Partners. The team included world champion ocean surf ski paddler and Shaw and Partners Race Team member Cory Hill, multi-Ironman champion Shannon Eckstein, professional surf Ironman Luke Cuff and Gold Coast runner Louis McAfee.

 

The team took out the win in both the short course (21km) on Saturday and in the long course (41.8km) on Sunday, winning the Coolangatta Gold Men’s Open division for the third year in a row. To celebrate the victory the Shaw and Partners Foundation donated $10,000 to the local charity; The Albatross Nippers.

 

The Albatross Nippers is a Gold Coast based nipper program for children with special needs. The program aims to promote beach awareness, community spirit and fun all within an inclusive surf lifesaving environment.

 

The Coolangatta Gold is one of the premier events in the sport of Ironman/Surf Life Saving; and is broadly affiliated with Shaw and Partners' sponsorship of the North Bondi Surf Life Saving Club and Surf Life Saving Australia.
