A kids triathlon for children between the ages of 8 and 15 years will also take part over the weekend of the 3 Port Elizabeth legs of the Series.

The About IT Triathlon Series is well supported and annually attracts some of South Africa’s leading triathletes from around the country.

This year will see the Series being hydrated by Nutritech and fuelled by Caltex whilst all logistical support for the Series is provided by Dynamic Express Services, the transport and logistics partner of Zsports Events NPC.
