Held in the beautiful city of Klagenfurt, Ironman Austria attracts over 20,000 athletes from 50 nations each year to compete in a series of long distance triathlon races. John Smith, Paul Fettes, Kirstin Carroll and Mark McIntosh endured the gruelling one day challenge on the 1st of July 2012 as part of the Monifieth Triathlon club (M3 for short). The challenge consisted of a 3.8km swim, a 180km bike ride and it finally finished with a 42.2km marathon. The event was made even more difficult due to a heat wave reaching 104 Fahrenheit.
