"Having had PREPD the night before, I was holding pace in the final 10k’s of the marathon which I’ve never done before and started winding some time back on Cam... It was a very different sensation in the back-half of the marathon for me and the training was pretty similar to what I’ve done before so I can definitely attribute a huge part of that to PREPD"
— Tim Reed, 2016 IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion
PREPD helps boost Tim Reed to 2nd place in IRONMAN Australia
Congratulations to PREPD ambassador Tim Reed on an epic performance taking out 2nd place in IRONMAN in Port Macquarie earlier this month. A PB performance in a time of 8:09:50 – almost 7 minutes faster than when he won in 2016!
After heading into the run almost 10 mins behind Cam Wurf after a blisteringly fast bike leg, Reedy chipped away before reigning in an extra five minutes over the last 10k’s. Not quite enough to take out the win but Tim described it as “a clear standout race for me over this distance” and finished with a staggering 2:44 hour marathon!
Just a week later, Reedy backed up with a podium finish in hot and humid conditions in IRONMAN 70.3 Vietnam against a world class field including IRONMAN World Champion Patrick Lange.
"I said if everything went perfectly I could go 8:10 on this course, so it really was close to a perfect day for me"
— Tim Reed
"Yeah I was very tempted (to try and chase Cam earlier). Ultimately you are still racing yourself over this distance and you don’t want to totally explode by taking too many risks."
