Two Oceans Entries – SSTTT Results – ATC Training WhatsApp Groups



ATC Summer Sunset Team Time Trial - Results

Thank you very much to everyone who helped at the ATC Summer Sunset Team Time Trial last month.  The event was a great success and with the timing chips, we needed a lot less helpers in the transition area.  We had some teething problems with the timing chips in the batons but spilt times for most teams worked very well.  We have posted all teams’ lap split times on our ATC SSTTT Event Page  and will add individual runner results once teams have provided us with the details.

Discovery ITU Cup & Duathlon

Entries for the Discovery ITU World Triathlon Cup Cape Town and Discovery Cape Town Duathlon opened last week!  This has become an iconic event on Cape Town’s Triathlon and Duathlon Calendar.  Both events will take place on Sunday, 11 February 2018.  For details, visit:  http://www.triathlon.capetown

Embark’ s coached group training for beginner and intermediate athletes wanting to tackle one of the Discovery events started last week.  There is still plenty time to prepare so if you want to be part of one the most exiting weekends on our sports calendar, visit www.embark.co.za or contact Steve@embark.co.za.


Tour to Ironman 70.3 Barcelona

We’ve had a lot of interest in the Tour to Barcelona so have managed to secure more standard rooms in the hotel at a better group booking rate!  There are ONLY 8 of these standard rooms available on a first come first served basis, at a reduced rate of R 11 700. Once these rooms are gone, the price reverts to the original price (R 12 950).

We booked a 4-Star hotel, with a pool, pool bar and a private beach.  Our price includes sun loungers and towels.  We have gone for a slightly more expensive hotel as the past tours have shown that most of the tour fun happens around the hotel bar, pool and gatherings for daily breakfasts.  The 70.3 entry fee is currently in tier 3, and moves into tier 4 and a price increase shortly.  The Rand has taken a knock against the Euro again.  So please book ASAP.
