The Beast Trial Run

On Sunday, a couple of members tackled The Beast, which, as its name implies, is a tough trail run on Table Mountain with options for 50 Km and 30 Km. 

Juan Carstens was 9th overall and won the 30-34 AG in the 50 Km event.  Darren Behrendt was second in the 35-39 AG and Jeannine Ruffles was second in the 50+ AG.

10 Jun '18: Results Comrades


Sunday, 10 June 2018

The Moses Mabhida Stadium makes for a truly stunning finish to the Comrades Ultra Marathon!  Not without logistical challenges though, as runners must scale another massive flight of stairs, 3 levels, to exit or visit the club areas.  But arriving in the stadium, after 90 Kms on your feet, with crowds cheering must be amazing. 

3 Jun '17: Results IM 70.3 DBN

Ironman 70.3 Durban

Sunday, 3 June 2018

Congratulations to all Triathletes for a successful Ironman 70.3 in Durban.  This event turned out to be tougher than expected with the wind being a real nuisance on the bike leg.  Still, a great day out for Atlantic Triathlon Club with our win in Division II of the Ironman TriClub league.  That’s 3 out of 3 for the Ironman African Series, giving us a healthy lead in this Division worldwide.

20 May '18: RESULTS IM703 Barcelona

Ironman 70.3 Barcelona

The tour to Barcelona was a fantastic experience.  Callela is the perfect place for a 70.3 event with great conditions in the Mediterranean for the Swim; a beautiful, tough, hilly and fun (for some), Bike route; and a flat Run route along the beach. 

As with 70.3 Buffalo City, the bike route makes this one of the more difficult 70.3 events to complete.  The down-hills are fast with a couple of sharp bends making it easier than Buffalo City for riders with downhill skills but more difficult for riders without.
