My Great Day Out – Shannon Eckstein

Shannon Eckstein, Australian and World Ironman legend shares his Great Day Out.

His successes haven’t come without dedication to his training. The BMD Northcliffe Surfclub has been his stomping ground for a fair chunk of his career. In that time, Shannon has seen younger triathletes come from Nippers to racing alongside him. The club is also renowned for its bar and restaurant, they do a great burger post training!

The other love in Shannon’s life is horse racing, so much so that a group of trainers named one of their fast fillies ‘Eckstein.’ The 3 year old horse does not like to lose, so the name is only fitting!

Shannon loves living on the Gold Coast and is excited about two big upcoming sporting events – The Magic Millions Carnival in January, and of course, the 2018 Commonwealth games from April 4 – 15.
