The 9th annual Spec-Savers Ironman will be held in the bay on Sunday. This means getting down to the beach could be a bit tricky - so check out the road closures and crossing points. Marine Drive from Hobie to Noordhoek will also be closed on Saturday morning from 07h00 to 11h00 for the corporate triathlon.
Come down and support all the crazy ou's that are subjecting themselves to a 4k swim, 180k bike and 42k run.
Download the road closure map here. Remember - road closure means have fun new places to skate before the race starts! Nice smooth bits of tar on the Hobie to Brooke's Hill stretch.
If you're feeling charitable and would like to support an excellent cause, then you can sms the word "Kids" to 39408 and you'll be donating a once-off donation of R15 to the Ironman 4 the Kidz charity.
It was started by husband in 2005, and to date has raised over R5 million for kids charities in the Eastern Cape. Beneficiaries include 12 local children's homes, youth care centres and baby shelters. It's not only about the financial support, but also about instilling in these kids the Ironman motto of Anything is Possible, and giving them hope.
It has seen fantastic results, with many of the kids at the children's home now finishing matric and going on to university, whereas prior to the charity getting involved most would leave school in Grade 10. Many of the youngsters from the homes now participate in the Pritt Ironman held on Saturday - and beam with achievement on receiving their finishers medals. Last year money raised by the charity built a games and recreation centre for the kids at the EP Children's home.
