The participation in the 2014 Schools Challenge blew our expectations out the water! We are happy to announce that once again, this exciting event will form part of the 2015 Discovery World Triathlon Cape Town and will be even bigger and better!
This event caters for scholars from the age of 12 to participate in an international triathlon in a team or, if they are 16 and older, in the individual race. Schools from around the Western Cape are gearing up and getting their teams ready to challenge each other on this exciting course. For the older guys and girls, they will have the opportunity to have the Swim, Bike and Run course to themselves as they race in the individual races.
What is more exciting than challenging your friends and even your rival schools to a triathlon dual? You will not find a more action packed weekend and there is no reason rush off home after your race! Bring the whole family and all your friends to support you and then watch the best triathletes in the world fight it out for top honours - on the same course you just raced on. You will find huge names like the Brownlee brothers and our very own Richard Murray shredding up the course to prove their triathlon worth!
You will be the envy of all your classmates, show off your medal and receive your certificate at the official school certificate prize giving. Trophies will be awarded to the Top Teams in their relevant age groups as well as the school with the most participants. Paul Roos and Bishops took the silverware in 2014 - who will be next? We DARE your school to TRI!
All participants need to be present at race registration.
