Tri-Robben Island

Dates: 9 September

Tri-Robben Island offers athletes a truly historical and prestigious experience as they spend a day on the island where Madiba spent much of his time in prison.

Tri-Robben Island will be an experience with the swim being in the harbour, and the cycle and run legs taking the athletes to the various landmarks on the island including the Limestone pits, Lighthouse and famous WW2 cannon. The race will consist of a morning sprint distance of a 400m swim, 14km cycle and 4km run with the afternoon race consisting of an 800m swim, 28km cycle and 8km run.

Race Entries are open for only 27 days up until the event - each day for each year Madiba was in prison and proceeds will be going towards the development and rehabilitation of the island.
