The up-country triathletes have been forced to travel to their favourite races for many years now – mostly down at the coast with a day’s drive at least or a couple of hours flying time away
NOW, they have the JHB ULTRA right on their door-step. Taking place on the 2nd DECEMBER at the Cradle Moon Resort, the ULTRA SERIES has finally come “home” and will offer the up-country athletes a sleep in their own beds the night before RACE DAY.
The Ultra Series which has 4 events spread across the country and is SA’s only home grown ultra-triathlon series will stage the 1st of many events on Sunday the 2nd December.
The Cradle is a second home to most of the cyclists and triathletes living above the Vaal River and they will know this new race route like the back of their hands. It does not come any better than this.
Entries are literally streaming in and the limit of maximum allowed athletes is expected to be reached soon. Athletes who want to race the Sprint or Ultra distance events are encouraged to enter now as entries close in 3 weeks.
The swim as you will well know, will take place inside the resort venue confines at the Cradle Moon. Thereafter cyclists head out onto the popular cradle cycle route with a slight deviation to ensure that there is minimal cross over between the competitors and those out for a casual cycle ride. The race is expected to start around 7:30am which should see most of the day cyclists already off the road sipping on their JAVA’s by the time the ULTRA and SPRINT triathletes get to work. The Ultra Triathletes will then start their event at 8am
Triathletes can choose between the Sprint (600m swim/20km cycle/5km run) and the Ultra (1.9km swim/90km cycle/21km run) events. There are also team entries available for the family teams, friends and corporates that want to get involved but only want to do 1 of the 3 disciplines.
The course for the swim is “flat” while the cycle route will be fairly undulating. For the regulars who train this venue week in and week out, this will definitely not be a problem. The run will consist of some tar and trail sections ensuring a traffic free run leg with some great wildlife scenery
No entries taken on the weekend of the event – it’s a strictly PRE-ENTRY EVENT only.
The B-Active crew deliver a world-class event that is easily at pace and precision with any other triathlon event in the world
Best you get your entry in now and avoid the FOMO…………
