THE popular City Lodge Hotels Group 3 Beaches Challenge takes place at the Summerstrand Surf Lifesaving Club, Pollok Beach, on Sunday.

Established in 2012, this fun event is an exciting individual or team race along the stunning Port Elizabeth beachfront for open water swimmers, surf lifesavers, stand-up paddlers and runners.

Teams are split into two groups: duo teams or quad teams, where the duo team comprises a swimmer and a runner while a quad team has three swimmers and one runner.

The event starts at Pollok Beach with the swimmers and lifesavers setting off on a 1.6km stretch to Hobie Beach before coming out of the water to round a Score Energy Drink transition station and/or tag their teammate.

Stage two is a 800m stretch from Hobie Beach to Humewood Beach and stage three is 1.1km from Humewood Beach to Kings Beach, while the final stage is a 3km run from Kings Beach along the promenade back to Pollok Beach.

The surf lifesavers will take part in their lifesaving ironman category, where the order of events is surf ski, swim, Malibu and run. Entries are open on www.3beaches.co.za with some great prizes from the City Lodge Hotels Group and other supporters up for grabs and finish line drinks from Score Energy Drink.

Entry is R150 per person and R200 per team. Late entries will be taken on the morning but carry a R50 late entry penalty fee.
