Following the announcement at the Season Launch, we are pleased to confirm that Barry Silverlock has taken on the role of providing a seminar and guidance to members that are new to the 70.3 or half ironman. Barry Silverlock takes over from Chris Limb who instigated this successful initiative a number of years ago and now within the club there are many members that have benefited from this half ironman planning.

Barry is a long term member of the club with nearly 20 years of membership, including many as a committee member and is a life member of the club. Barry continues to race all distances from Sprint to Ironman (although he has said he has retired from Ironman). Barry has done the end of season half ironman since it was the long course at Rottnest, Barry is highly competitive in his age group and has done over 30 half ironman races and most recently won his age group at Mandurah. Barry has a wealth of experience to share and is very pragmatic and approachable, if you are looking for some assistance in planning your 70.3 we encourage you to consider this opportunity
