Middle Distance Overview

Participate in the Mother City’s first 1.9km swim, 90km bike and 21km run and experience Cape Town like never before!

CHALLEGECAPETOWN  is a point-to-point triathlon, with a different start and finish.

Start your day with an early morning shuttle (from the Cape Town CBD) to the Big Bay Surf Lifesaving Club, where a 1.9km cold water swim awaits. This single loop swim will be wetsuit compulsory.

From T1, start your flat & fast 90km looped cycle course towards Koeberg before your exciting sprint finish along Government Avenue in the Company’s Garden to T2.

Last but not least, it’s time for your half marathon. We’re taking you into the very heart of the City with a 3 x 7km run loop from the Company’s Garden, through Zonnebloem and towards District 6. Save your legs and lungs for the hill taking you up from the Castle of Good Hope towards the M3; your effort will be rewarded with a spectacular view of the City and harbour. The loop format is fantastic for spectators!
