Top athletes Glen Gore, Travis Johnson, Brad Venter and Gerhard De Bruin have secured their spot on the starting line next to triathlon novices Steve Kendal and Marc Whiteford.  The MiWay Sun City ULTRA Triathlon incorporates two different distance triathlon events taking place on Sunday, 8 May 2016. Teams and individuals can enter either the Sprint or the ULTRA Triathlon, with both events winding their way around Africa’s Kingdom of Pleasure, Sun City Resort. The first event kicks off at 07h00 and all events start with a gliding swim through the clear fresh waters of the Sun City’s Water World.

“We are very excited to announce our long term partnership with MiWay. MiWay have partnered with the ULTRA Triathlon Series for the next three years and have given us the opportunity to build our series to reach the potential that we have the vision for. MiWay have also allowed us to expand the Series to include a Cape ULTRA and this will now give our Series a complete National footprint with two events in KwaZulu Natal, one in Sun City and one in the Western Cape”, says B-Active Sports owner and race director, Damian Bradley.

Entries for the event are filling up fast, so if you are interested don’t waste any time and get to the race website and enter today. Athletes will be spoilt with race goodies as well as beautiful race routes, from the clear waters of the Sun City Dam, to the quiet, scenic running route through the two Championship Golf Courses.

Discounted accommodation is on offer at Sun City to give the athletes a festive weekend of fun for the whole family. Discounted water sports and other activities will be on offer for competitors and their families at the Resort for the whole weekend.
