The whole event took place within the Estate - yes, it's that big. I don't know what our total distance was but it took my all-girls team (first placed women's team and high placed overall) about 1h50 to complete the course. We did two biking legs, one run leg and two short (very short, like very short - but fun) paddle legs around wee dams on the golf course.
Following from a thought I had a good few years ago... I'm not sure why there are no 'Nature Estates' - like a golf estate but without the golf course. Trees, bush, walking trails, little bokkies, pretty and expansive gardens. I'd like to live on one of these housing estates. Throw in some running and mountain biking trails, walking paths, bird hides and a small dam on which to paddle... Yes, a multisport estate. Great for sporty people and nice for those who enjoy watching birds and appreciating a natural and green environment on their doorstep.
All the loveliness without the environmental nastiness of a water-table-sucking golf estate. Like there are not enough golf courses around!
Aside from these musings... we, Team Triumph AR, had a super race today. I raced with Lauren and Lizelle again and we whipped through the course, especially enjoying the downhills on the golf cart paths. This was our second win, of two, in this year's Kinetic Adventure Series. Our thanks go out to Triumph who generously sponsor our race entries.

Next Kinetic Adventure is 25 July - brrrr... the dead of winter!
