CHALLENGE CAPE TOWN 2021 is going to be an exceptional event- we have a TON of “new” factors; a new race director (Damian “The Man” Bradley), a new focussed venue (Bloubergstrand), a host of fantastic new sponsors, a new mobile app (launching soon)…. and- our new 2021 Bike and Run routes!
“We believe that the route change will not only make it easier for all athletes in terms of logistics with only one transition area for T1 and T2, but will make the racing fast and fun”, says Damian Bradley, Race Director. “The route will be appealing to all levels of athlete, from the first time to the experienced age grouper and pro athletes. This is going to an exciting and strategic course”.
The CHALLENGE CAPE TOWN 2021 is a fast and flat route that is made up of 5 anti-clockwise loops.
👉Start on the M14 (outside the Eden On The Bay SC)
👉 Turn left on to the M120
👉 Turn left on to the R27
👉 Turn left back on the M14 (through Melkbosstrand)
Total Length of each loop: +- 18km
Total Elevation of each loop: +- 30m
**Be warned: although this is can be a seriously good place to cement a solid PB, the wind must be taken in to account. This will make for some clever and tactical racing- we can’t wait to see you all there!)
This is a fast and flat route that is made up of 3 out and back loops.
👉Start at Eden On the Bay
👉 Turn right on to the M14
👉 Turnaround at 3.5km mark
Total Length of each loop: +-7km
Total Elevation of each loop: +-105m
This run route has gentle inclines/ declines in the lap, but nothing that is too crazy. It will provide the perfect opportunity to chase a time (or a competitor). You finish on the grass area of Eden on The Bay, where the warm welcomes of fellow athletes (and hopefully spectators- COVID depending!) will bring you home!
