Destined for legendary status amongst the global triathlon community 11global Cape Town is no ordinary triathlon.
For nearly 400 years, Robben Island, 11 kilometers from Cape Town, was a place of banishment, exile, isolation and imprisonment. However, today Robben Island has come to symbolize, not only for South Africa and the African continent, but for the entire world, the triumph of the human spirit over enormous hardship and adversity.
11global celebrates this triumph and delivers a demanding race course consisting of sub average water temperature, a flat yet windy bike and a fast run. Come prepared as we guarantee to recalibrate your race experience! – Global 11
So, whats the backdrop like?
Now, how many quality Olympic Distance Races are there in Cape Town? um…. NONE, until now. I am personally very excited about this race and am preparing quite nicely for it at the moment. Non drafting (so juniors with dubious intentions – I will squirt GU2O in your eyes if you sit my wheel), epic swim in the slightly cooler water, and a fast, scenic run. AND its in Cape Town.
If you are racing Ironman, this fits in well with the program. You can schedule this in no problem. The top pro`s from SA and abroad will be there, with the Don making an appearance to keep the guys running hard up front, and I believe it will be a race on par on an organisational level as an Ironman.
