Ally’s orange juice
COOLUM Beach will be like a scene out of the running of the bulls tomorrow, with horns out and noses flared.
More than 150 friends, family and clubmates of Alexandra Headland's Alyssa Bull will fill the crowd for round five of the Telstra Ironwoman Series in a sea of orange shirts and bull horns.
Orange is her favourite colour and the shirts carry the slogan Alyssa 'Ally' Bull: Join the Stampede.
She will be drawing inspiration from her brightly coloured supporters who have made their mark throughout the series.
Coach Shane Dalziel said the event wouldn't just be about Bull, but a demonstration of club spirit.
"It's not about one girl doing an event, it's about a whole surf club watching and supporting her," he said.
"She's a real rarity.
"She's been with Alex (Surf Club) since was a Nipper, and she's an inspiration to a lot of people at the club."
Bull said having a crowd behind her tomorrow would be a big motivator for the race.
"I think it'll make me want to work harder," she said.
"If I can get a good result, they can have something to cheer about."
