Calling all Road and MTB triathletes.
Redhub is hosting a TRIATHLON and DUATHLON for both MTB off-road Triathletes and road Triathletes to take part in a dual event where we are combining both disciplines.
The venue is Cradle Moon lake Side Game Lodge (previously known as Heia Safari Ranch) in the cradle of human kind. The venue is a mere 30 minutes’ drive from most areas in Johannesburg and Pretoria. The venue is tranquil, quiet and offers a bush experience complete with viewing game close up. Facilities include Restaurants, Bars, Bungalows and a beautiful lake for the whole family.
The date is 29 OCTOBER 2017, the Triathlon for road Triathletes is over the standard Olympic distance of 1.5/40/10 km. NON DRAFTING.
We previously had non-standard distances at the previous Redhub events and finished with a very tough run. We are now keeping the Run simple still scenic and flowing over MUCH flatter terrain covering the standard distance of 10 km.
This event is aimed at all Triathletes and Triathlon clubs. Although it is hosted by Redhub, IT IS FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL INDIVIDUALS AND ALL CLUBS ARE WELCOME TO PUT THEIR CAZEBO’S up and have areas allocated for them by the organisers. The event is aimed at developing the sport and to bolster the current sparse Triathlon and Duathlon racing calendar.
For the MTB Triathlons, we are catering for the same swim and run course, but with a fun, flowing, hard 25 km off road ride.
For a start the course will combine a swim start for roadies and MTB participants. The Duathletes will start at the same TIME WITH THEIR FIRST 4km RUN. The cycle leg will be split where roadies will complete the 40 km loop in the cradle and MTB riders will ride a 25 km route inside the venue boundaries. The run will again bring the ROAD AND MTB riders together with a 10 km off-road run (quite flat and scenic) for all disciplines.
The MTB route is flowing, lots of single track, not too technical and great fun!
Duathlon for the non-swimmers!! Start with a 4 km flat run around the dam area, then into the transition area on to the cycle from which point the Triathlon and Duathlon is exactly the same.
Split times and transition times will not be recorded officially. All those with triathlon watches are requested to record their own split times. The event will start at 7: 15 am strictly. Race briefing will be at 6:55 am. End times will be published on the Spectrum Sport Website.
Water points will be stocked with Coke and Water.
Roadies will ride around the cradle area on open public roads. Marshalls will be at every turn to assist with safety. Be aware of traffic since roads will not be closed to the public.
