East London once again turns into triathlon central as the Standard Bank IRONMAN 70.3 South Africa celebrates 10 years!
Africa’s most-entered triathlon takes place Sunday 29 January 2017 and will once again feature close to 3000 athletes including some of South Africa and the world’s best long distance triathletes.
Athletes will take on the 1.9km swim, 90.1km bike and 21.1km run in Buffalo City, East London. The action gets underway with the swim at Orient Beach before the athletes head out along the East London Esplanade and onto the N2 highway on the bike. The run takes place along the Esplanade and through the suburbs before finishing at the Orient Complex.
Thousands of spectators are set to come out and support the athletes while enjoying the festival atmosphere where cheerleaders, DJ and announcers will keep the crowds entertained.
