There are only three players in the race’s history who have completed it in under an hour. In December 2011, James Marshall finished in a time of 59.49 minutes, however, that was topped last year by Gibbins, who clocked in at 58 minutes and 39 seconds.
Gibbins beat that record by 44 seconds for the 2014 event.
Former Hurricane and Leinster player, Jimmy Gopperth, is the only other player to go under an hour.
The punishing event started at Lyall Bay with a 1km run, where they then transitioned to their bikes for a 21km cycle around the bays.
This took them around Breaker Bay, Seatoun, and Karaka Bay, and continued around the headland, along Evans Bay and past Greta Point to Oriental Parade. From there, they endured a 2km uphill run to the Mt Victoria lookout.
