Start your December holidays the fit way – try a tri with About IT.

The popular About IT Triathlon Summer Series returns to the Eastern Cape this December with 4 rounds of a sprint distance triathlon taking place in Port Elizabeth and St Francis Bay between the 13th and the 26th December.

An ideal starting place for any budding triathlete, the Sprint Distance triathlon comprises a 750m swim, 20km Cycle and 5km Run which ensures that this Series attracts triathletes from all over the country, some attempting their first triathlon whilst others are deep into training for the Ironman 70.3 or full Ironman races next year.

Port Elizabeth hosts the first 3 races of the series, all starting at Pollok Beach, and taking place this Sunday (13th), Wednesday 16th and Sunday 20th. To keep things exciting the organisers have promised that each race day course will be different throughout the series.

Round 1 on Sunday will see the 5km run route taking participants through the very scenic Humewood Golf Course whilst the cycle is an out and back course along Marine Drive.

Wednesday 16th triathlon is the annual ‘Pollok to Schoenies’ Triathlon which sees the 750m swim at Pollok Beach, the 20km cycle to the Sacramento Cannon in Schoen-ies and the 5km run being along the Sacramento Trail. Organisers collect all participants’ race kit and ensure that it is waiting for them in the transition area at Schoenies before their arrival on the bike.

A chauffeur system is also offered for those wanting to get their cars from Pollok Beach to Schoenmakerskop.

If the interest is sufficient, an introductory triathlon is being offered for children between the ages of 8 years and 14 years at Pollok Beach on the evening before each race, starting at 18:00, pre-registration is essential for the children.

  • Registration is a once-off process with online entry covering your first race day irrespective of which of the 4 race days this will be so that you are able to secure your Series number soonest.
