19 Jun '19: New Kurland TriPublished by ATC Multisport on Wed, 19 Jun 2019
New Triathlon in the Knysna Week:
If you are heading to Knysna for the mid-winter sports-break, there are some new events to spice up the week. Most notably the new Kurland Forest Triathlon!
This new off-road Triathlon will take place on Thursday, 27 June, on the Kurland Hotel grounds, just outside Plettenberg Bay. There are three distances to choose from, aptly named after horses in keeping with the polo theme of this amazing Kurlands estate:
Clydesdale: 800m Swim - 19.4 Km Bike – 9 Km Run.
Polo Pony: 400m Swim – 9.7 Km Bike – 4.5 Km Run.
Shetland: Kiddies - 100m Swim – 3 Km Bike – 1 Km Run.
The triathlon is a Cross Tri, so you must take your Mountain Bike. Online entrants will receive a stylish long sleeve top & kids will receive a cool gift. After the invigorating fun experience, participants are invited to join us at Katrina’s where they can enjoy Kurland’s warm & cosy hospitality.
Electric Ink, organisers of the Warmwater Weekend, Blue Lagoon, Race 2 Stanford, and now Kurland, Triathlons are adding value to the Knysna Oyster Festival midweek experience with the Forest Hikes, Trail Runs and Mountain Bike events. You can enter three of their events for the “Hat-Trick Package”.
