“For over four decades, the Nepean Triathlon has enjoyed the remarkable dedication of four legendary athletes who’ve been a part of every edition since its inception in 1982. Supported by the Pantherettes this year, Peter Smith (#2003), Eugene Irvin (#2062), Greg Davies (#2165), and Greg Chapman (#2038) truly epitomised endurance and commitment, showcasing a level of devotion rarely seen in sporting events.
