ENTRIES for the MiWay Midlands Ultra Triathlon have been extended to 17 February. The extension gives athletes more time to sign up for the event which takes place at Midmar Dam on 6 March.

From start to finish, athletes will be treated to a backpack loaded with goodies, custom-made race garments, transition bags, change tents and ice creams and massages on the finish line.

Beginners are welcome to enter the sprint event, so this is an opportunity should not be missed.

How much food do you need to concentrate?

We have been taught that we need three meals a day in order to make it through the day and while most of us indulge in more than our fair share there is a large portion of South Africans who are living off barely enough to sustain them.
