Ironman South Africa done and DUSTED!!…

After 9 additional weeks post 70.3 Half Ironman, the Embark athletes can finally say ‘they are IRONMEN’!! It was a tough 9 weeks of additional training, but we had a fantastic group in both town and N Suburbs. There was just under 50 athletes from Embark chasing that glorious 10th edition medal for Ironman South Africa. And we had a 95% success rate! It really was a fantastic day out there.

But Ironman is not actually about the race day, its about getting ready for race day. And after 9 weeks the athletes had gone through a set of tyres, a pair of shoes and a pair of goggles each!! (OK that’s an exaggeration, but we spent a LONG time riding/running/swimming). And it paid off with all the athletes having a truly magical experience on race day. Make no mistake its VERY hard on race day, and its a long day, so the better you are trained the more enjoyable the day is. The Embark Ironman group did all their training together and was great to see them on race day high five-ing each other and cheering each other on.

The ironman group training will start later this year. So keep an eye on the website or get in touch with us from the contact page.
