[Event] REDHUB CRADLEMOON 5 IN 1 TRIATHLON...
REDHUB CYCLING 21 Mar 2017
When: 30 April 2017
Where: CRADLE MOON GAME AND LAKE SIDE LODGE, Gauteng
Redhub is hosting its second event. This time a 5 IN 1 Triathlon/Duathlon for both MTB and road athletes to take part in one event where we are combining both disciplines. A relay for teams will also be available this time!!
DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND a Duathlon will form part of this EVENT!!!
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 offer a bush experience complete with viewing game close up, a beautiful lake and facilities for the whole family.
The date is 30 April 2017, the triathlon is over challenging but relatively short distances with some unique and fun differences from the norm.
A swim start for triathletes and a run start for duathletes at the same time will get the ball rolling.
After a 1 km swim for triathletes and a 3 km run for duathletes , the cycle leg will again be split where roadies will complete a 32km loop around the cradle and MTB riders will ride a challenging 16 km route inside the venue boundaries. The final 5 km run will again bring the disciplines together. The run is not too technical but tough and scenic. Specialist trail running shoes are not essential. This format gives the roadies a chance to experience a run, quite different from the typical road event.
The goal is to have a day out for the family, push hard and test you form! Or use it as a training event. Or just have fun and experience the unique flavour of this format and environment.
Hosting events are costly. Entry fees are becoming prohibitive in general. For this event, the organisers are setting out to have a fun, challenging day at a reasonable cost to participants. Entry fees are R 350 each. TEAM RELAY Entry R600 per team. The fee will include your conservancy entry fee valued at R 50. Support tables during the race, extensive route marking, and a medical support team on hand, attending marshals and overall timing and publishing of times of participants.
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 am strictly and end times will be published on the Redhub Website.
Roadies will ride around the cradle area on open public roads. The route requires participants to turn left only (not crossing traffic at any point in time), with no stop streets and a shoulder 95% of the time, but is still on public roads open to normal traffic. Marshalls will be at every turn to assist with safety.
Entries will be open on the online Redhub online store from 20 March and will close on Saturday, 21 April, 12h00.
