Enter now for Triple Challenge

-

THE Triple Challenge is celebrates its eighth birthday on Sunday, November 15.

The event comprises a 22km off-road run from the start at Polly Shorts Spar, Pietermari­tzburg, to the first transition point at Camperdown, followed by a 55km mountain bike leg through the Valley of a Thousand Hills to Inanda Dam and the second transition point – at which stage athletes can either choose a 20km paddling leg on Inanda Dam (the Multisport race) or a 7km trail run (the MultiX race). Participan­ts may enter as individual­s, or in various team combinatio­ns.

The initial concept of the event was to combine a section of each of the famous Pietermari­tzburg to Durban endurance challenges – the Comrades Marathon, the Amashovash­ova Cycle Classic and the Dusi Canoe Marathon into a one-day, multi-discipline­d event to create a unique multisport event.

The Triple Challenge has reached the status of being an event of its own standing and attracts athletes from around the country to take on the 100km ultra.
