4 months of training and now the big day…


For the last 4 months, the Embark coaches have been focusing on getting a group of beginners from the couch to finishing their first triathlon! And this weekend is the test! The training culminates at the Discovery WTS Cape Town Triathlon this weekend, where we race the Olympic distance on Saturday and the sprint distance on Sunday. If you don’t yet know the difference between the 2, join the next Embark beginners program!

Over the last 4 months the beginners have learned EVERYTHING they need to know to complete their first triathlon. They have gone from the indoor swimming pools to open water, from spin classes to the open road, and from the hills to the track for their running. Over the 4 months they have gained the confidence to tackle the race head on!

The groups have been training on the Atlantic Seaboard, Northern Suburbs, Southern Suburbs, Blouberg, Sommerset West and in Jozi too. Check out the ‘about us’ page to see the various coaches and areas.

The groups are fun and focused and many great friendships are forged through the routine created by the Embark beginners program. Come down over the weekend and witness the race first hand. You will notice us in our team kit, and you will notice the camaraderieĀ and friendship shared by all the athletes.

Best of luck to all the beginners, the coaches cant wait to see you at the finish line!

On Monday 4th May the new programs will be released for winter. Get in touch with us for any information on this through the contact page.
