The three course event will be hosted by rugby league great Ben Ikin, Australia’s most popular winter and summer paralympian Michael Milton, ironman Peter Jacobs, expert fisherman Steve Starling, and rugby union legend, Mark Ella with former winter Olympian and local fitness guru Manuela Berchtold keeping the boys in line.
On Saturday Ben Ikin and Mark Ella will be dusting off their footy boots to conduct a football coaching session, Michael Milton will escort a mountain bike ride around the resort and Pete Jacobs will host a triathlon swim/run coaching clinic.
