From triathletes-in-the-making, to the serious die-hard kind, the Maxed Elite TINMAN Triathlon is designed for everyone who loves to move. It’s a high-speed, exhilarating race with categories for every one of every fitness level.

Maxed Elite TINMAN Series director, Damian Bradley is excited to welcome Mr Price Sport and the Maxed Elite brand on board with the Series.

“The brand and the event have a massive crossover appeal and we feel that both the Maxed Elite Brand and the TinMan will work well together in developing the sport and attracting new competitors to participate in something different and cool in Durban.”

Mr Price Sport Marketing Executive, Nikki Viljoen agrees:

“At Mr Price Sport, our philosophy’s about appealing to every athlete: from the beginners to the pros, each with their own accomplishments and goals. It’s about their best, no matter what that ‘best’ might be. Not only is the upcoming Maxed Elite TinMan Triathlon the perfect platform for every level of athlete to try beat their best, it’s also ties in with our current ‘What’s Your Best?’ campaign. This is exactly why partnering with TinMan is a perfect fit, and we’re more than excited about being on board!”    

The next Maxed Elite TINMAN takes place on the 16th of November 2014, with four events taking place on the day. The first of these kicks off at 7am, all with a captivating view of the Indian Ocean along the Durban beachfront. The triathlon sets up camp on the scenic Suncoast Sundeck, with the start and finish line of each event situated on the grass area.

Triathletes from as young as 8 years old can take part in the day’s races – so if you’re a family that loves everything active, this is a perfect way to spend the morning. And for anyone older, today’s the day to ditch the TV, rally your buddies and lace up your racing shoes.

On the day, the swimming phase of each race takes place at Suncoast Beach. The cycle leg takes triathletes onto the cycling circuit around the Durban Country Club and Kings Park swimming pool. And for each run, racers are treated to the panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, all the way down to Blue Lagoon and back to the Suncoast Sundeck.

Here’s a list of all the events on offer:


If you love an early-morning run, this one’s got your name on it. The 10km run gets going at 7am, and is made up of two 5km laps.


This one’s aimed at the little movers as young as 8 years old! Get fresh with a 200m swim, set off for a 6km cycle and get your heart racing with a 2,5km run. Easy-ka-peezy.


If you’re 15 years of age or older, and you’re looking to work up a sweat and get the blood pumping, the TinMan sprint’s for you! This one’s made up of a 600m swim, an 18km cycle and a 5km run! Go get ‘em!


Get set to sweat, fitness fanatics! This trying triathlon gives teams the chance to enter in a three-man relay section for the Challenge Triathlon, which includes a 1km swim, a 30km cycle and a10km run.

Of course, if you’re not taking part in the day’s riveting races, you can always play your part by cheering on and supporting the athletes giving the Maxed Elite TINMAN their all.
