SteppingStones’ resident athlete Pam Abbott recently participated in the annual Ogier Stroke and Stride Series. The third and final event of the series on Wednesday August 24th was particularly difficult as the swimmers fought choppy seas before moving onto the running portion of the event. There was fierce competition throughout the series and Pam put on a fantastic performance coming in second in the ladies overall for the series while Jacquie Retief took home the ladies title.
In the men’s overall competition, Marius Acker regained his series title, with Matthew Courtis in second and Johan Heath in third.
Sponsored by Ogier and organised by the Cayman Islands Triathlon Association, the Stroke and Stride is a 3-series charity fund-raiser race held every August with the start and finish at Sunset House. It attracts a wide range of abilities; from those that regularly compete, to those that just want to get out and have some fun and exercise.
