Perth beaches will be taken over by the Kellogg's Nutri-Grain IronMan Series and a new public participation event, the Indian Ocean Classic.  The coast will be swimming with athletes and budding surf lifesavers as they take part in a weekend of surf, sun and family fun.  The Indian Ocean Classic will have all the excitement of the IronMan Series with the same categories of ski, board, run and swim, but over an extended course, and can be completed by individuals or teams of four. Held on Saturday 28 January, the event will run from Trigg to Cottesloe, covering 25.4km, and will see the likes of Ironman legend Guy Leech and past winner Guy Andrews competing alongside the general public. The Kellogg's Nutri-Grain IronMan and IronWoman competition, held on Sunday, will up the intensity as the country's best surf athletes tackle sea and land in a test of endurance, power, skill and speed.
