Beginners first traithlon in 2 weeks…

With just 2 weeks to go until the beginners official ‘1st’ triathlon, its all systems go.  They will be doing the new ITU Cape Town Triathlon on the weekend of the 26/27th April. From a very beginners level, the beginners are now confidentially swimming over 1km in open water, riding well over 50kms, and running 10kms. Once this race is done, they decide if they want to continue and aim for the 70.3 Half Ironman in January. The Embark group training starts for this on 1 Aug later this year.

The final week of training this week sees the athletes doing a track session, a run/swim/run brick session, a tyre changing session, an open water swim and then a long run on the weekend. Additional sessions are an extra swim and a  long bike.

We wish all the beginner athletes best of luck for the upcoming triathlon.
