Sanlam Cape Town Marathon

A marathon is a funny thing. It’s not a particularly exciting spectator sport, yet there is so much to see and do, both on and around the route.

I have to say, as a local resident, that I’m totally impressed, and more than a little proud with what the people of my City managed to showcase to the world with the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon.

WTS Cape Town

Discovery World Triathlon Series Cape Town

Not even a stumble on the run could stop Alistair Brownlee‘s return to the top of the World Triathlon Series podium in Cape Town on Sunday, as the most successful athlete in series history took his total number of titles to 18.

While he tripped early on in the run, Brownlee made his way up to the lead group of Javier Gomez Noya,Richard Murray and Vincent Luis quickly, before blowing them away in the final 1500m. In his first WTS race in 2015 after returning from injury, Brownlee said he wasn’t sure what to expect, but was obviously thrilled with the result.
“Of course you never know, all you can do is train as hard as you can and put everything in that you can on the day. I knew I wasn’t that fit and I didn’t have good legs in that first lap to be honest… The whole thing was tough, but I’m so glad to have the win,” Brownlee said.

Killarney Criterium Racing

Wednesday evening cycle racing at Killarney Race Track in Cape Town has become a bit of a tradition among the local racing crowd.

Starting at 18:00, the riders race for an hour plus an extra lap and it is a flat out, full on, uncompromising 60 minute pain fest. Points are awarded for the top 10 each week and they count toward the series championship, with a prize giving held at the end of the season for the overall winners.

So if you fancy some really good, hard training, from September to the end the end of February, bring your bike, slap down 30 bucks and come race.
