2017-11-21 06:00

Entries are now open for next year’s Discovery Get Active Weekend in Cape Town.

This multisport weekend encourages Capetonians to get and stay active. It brings professional athletes and sport enthusiasts together for a day of swimming, cycling and running through the Mother City, with the Discovery duathlon Cape Town and the Discovery triathlon World Cup Cape Town all happening on 11 February next year.

“The Discovery Get Active weekend is a terrific opportunity for people to experience the thrill of multisport,” says Iona Maclean, Discovery’s head of experiential marketing.

“The duathlon makes multisport more accessible, allowing contestants who prefer running and cycling to compete, while leaving the crisp Cape waters to triathletes or those looking to challenge themselves and their fitness levels next year.”

The triathlon is the opening race on the International Triathlon Union’s global calendar that features 18 races across the world.

Cape Town’s triathlon is the only one on African soil.

“This event is special as it attracts the best triathletes in the world, including world and Olympic champions,” says race director Gary Marescia.

Local champ Richard Murray says: “To race in front of my home crowd and Table Mountain is always a pleasure.”

“The start times of each wave have been scheduled to ensure that athletes and spectators enjoy an action-packed day of racing,” says Marescia.

“We are pleased that Cape Town has been chosen as a host city once again,” says JP Smith, Mayco member for safety and security. “The city has developed a strong track record as an events ­destination.”
