New ironman at Lake Crackenback

The blisters on the feet of world ironman champion Pete Jacobs will have nearly healed when he takes his place alongside some of Australia's most inspirational sportspeople at a Movember charity weekend at Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa on Friday November 30 and Saturday December 1.

Pete Jacobs has become the fourth Australian to win the gruelling Ironman World Championship title in Kona, Hawaii.

He will join a panel of sporting heroes including rugby league great Ben Ikin, Australia's most popular summer and winter paralympian Michael Milton, rugby league legend Mark Ella, expert fisherman Steve Starling as well as local fitness guru Manuela Berchtold at a special celebrity Movember Sportsmans Lunch and then lead a training clinic the next day.

On Saturday December 1 the sporting stars will be sharing their tips and secrets in a series of interactive workshops.

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 while Pete Jacobs will host a triathlon swim/run coaching clinic and share some of his world championship winning strategies.

Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa's General Manager, Scott O'Neile said the resort team was getting right behind the Movember cause all month long.

"Male staff members are growing moustaches for fundraising and all areas of the resort are offering mo-inspired specials all month long," he said.
