Mothers Day Classic – Shepparton
One of the most special parts of our Shepparton event is hearing the personal stories from someone in our community that has been affected by BC. Whether it’s their story or one shared from a family member or a friend. Can’t wait for you to hear from this beautiful gal… Jayne Walters is inspirational, puts resilience to a whole new level and is always smiling, regardless of what is going on in her life. Jayne has the most incredible story to share with you – as well as a very poignant reminder for us all. 💗

Laura Smithers-Shaw you are an Ironman.
I have always got to stop and try to comprehend what an Ironman is. It’s a 3.8 km swim, 180 k bike ride, then a marathon 42.2 km run.
And this is how Lara did each leg
Swim 1 hour 3 minutes Ride 6 hours 29 minutes Run 4 hours 23 minutes
After many weeks of training, a very nervous build up and torrential rain the day before the race, the main event was about to begin. A busy swim start unfolded with a punch to the head and a careful watch so as not to swim into one of the many boats on the course! Once on the bike it was time to try to reduce the heart rate,; no easy feat when it’s 15kms of hills! Shocking road surfaces, hills and strong winds could not detract from the beauty of Port Macquarie’s stunning scenery. Once the 180kms was conquered (plus a quick reattaching of the bike chain!) it was time for the real race to commence. 4 laps of the run course was broken down into: 1: settle into a rhythm 2. Warm up lap 3. The real deal: usually the toughest lap 4: let adrenaline bring you home! The finish chute was simply the most incredible feeling; one that I’ll never forget. Hearing those words, ‘You are an Ironman ,’ fills me with overwhelming emotion.
While we try and avoid singling people out because everyone is out there trying their best, sometimes an effort comes along that just demands recognition.
A huge well done to Laura Smithers-Shaw who completed the Port Macquarie Ironman yesterday in 12 hours 7 minutes including a 4:23 marathon after knocking over a 3.8km swim and 180km bike leg. A fantastic result from one of the best people you’ll meet, we hope you’re recovering well! – Norah Armstrong.
