We’re off to IRONMAN South Africa…

20140208_064053Lots and lots and lots of time, sweat, some tears, and preparation has gone into the last 3 months getting the IRONMAN athletes ready for the big day on the 10th April. Our athletes benefitting from having 2 Certified Ironman Coaches (STeve Attwell and Jono Rumbelow). Ironman is the final race for the season for most of the triathletes, following on from IRONMAN 703 Buffalo City, and the summer season of triathlon. (All programs are offered by Embark at different branches in Cape Town and Jozi)

There were BIG weeks of training and volume, long, gruelling rides followed by runs, or long cold swims followed by more biking. But the more comfortable you can be on the big day, the better the experience will be. And we feel our athletes will all be more than comfortable on race day. We will be there supporting in conjunction with ATC Multisport as we cheer the athletes on from day break to sun down and later even still, to the cut off at mid night. Its one heluva day out there for the athletes and an epic day for supporters. If you are near PE, definitely make a turn and watch the extravaganza of human endurance.

If IRONMAN is something you are looking at doing, then join us later this year as we get our first time IRONMAN athletes ready over 8 months. You will complete lots of races on route to the big day and be fully ready and comfortable by April. The training is facilitated through coached group training and each athlete will follow their own program with the support of coaches, athletes and the club. Even if you have done IRONMAN before, the support Embark can offer you is pivotal to making this an unforgettable experience.

So pencil out Aug 2016 to April 2017 as you transform yourself from triathlete to IRONMAN!! To book you spot in the group please contact us through the contact us page.

But for now, it’s the BIGGEST GOOD LUCK high 5 for our current IRONMEN for this weekend!
