TSA Registration for Cape Ultra and Clanwilliam – CT Marathon


Congratulations to all the ATC’ers who did the Cape Town Marathon and related runs this weekend!  In the full Marathon, ATC Running had over 100 finishers with times ranging from 2:47(!) to 6:22.  Thank you to everyone who raced in our club kit, it was great to see so many out on the route.  Our men’s team (first 4 runners) finished in 10th and the ladies in 15th!  Both teams would have been a couple of positions higher in the rankings if recent member transfers to ATC had been completed.
Congratulations also to all the Triathletes who took part in the ITU WTS Grand Finale, which took place in Rotterdam, Netherlands, this past weekend.
Full results will be in our newsletter later this month.
TSA Registration – Cape Ultra & Clanwilliam:
IMPORTANT REMINDER:  If you are taking part in the Cape Ultra or Sprint this weekend or the Freshpak Fitness Festival next weekend, please purchase your TSA Full or Recreational License from the ATC today!  We will close registrations this evening and submit to CTUTA tomorrow to ensure that licenses are issued by the weekend.
The procedure is briefly described below.  You can also visit our About Affiliation Page for more information:
How to get a TSA license:
1)      If you haven't yet, Join or Renew your Atlantic Triathlon Club or ATC Multisport Membership through our On-Line Shop and add your license to the same basket.
2)      If your membership is up-to-date, you can go directly to the Licensing Section and purchase your license of choice.  If you do not have an active membership, you will not be able to purchase the license.  An explanation of the various license types are further down in this email.

Good luck to all the Triathletes doing the Cape Ultra and Sprint on Sunday!  Water temperature is expected to be around 13 degrees so be sure to pack your wetsuit.  You may also want to get a cold water hoodie from us this week sometime. 
We will set up the gazebos at the venue early on Sunday morning.
A reminder that the theme for the Freshpak Clanwilliam after-party is “fake news”.  Not much time left to get your outfit ready.
