Alpha Zero Tunnel Run

Not many people know that when they built the Huguenot Tunnel through the mountains above the town of Paarl in the Western Cape of South Africa, they built a second ‘service’ tunnel alongside it. This tunnel is the same size as the onm ne used as a toll road for traffic, it just isn’t finished off with a smooth concrete lining, merely a gunite shell. A lot like an upside down swimming pool I suppose.

So if not many people know that the tunnel exists, even fewer have been inside it. So those who raced the Alpha Zero Tunnel run, got the unique privilege of going through it twice.

All of the images from the race are available for download on the PhotoSport website.

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.

Wine Adventure Trail Run

It seems that the secret of the Dirtopia Trail Run Series is out. Over 600 runners took on the Wine Adventure Trail Run at the gorgeous Warwick Wine Estate, and the wait list for entries was a mile long.Gourmet burgers at the finish, and quality wine at the water stops were just a couple of the ‘little extras’ laid on by Warwick.

These images capture the fun of the event and the beauty of Stellenbosch, and hopefully will make you want to enter the next race on the 19th of July. I’d seriously advise anyone wanting to enter to do it online today, as in RIGHT NOW, because it IS going to sell out.. Go to www.dirtopia.co.za for more info.

Prime Jailbreak 2014

Now in its 9th year, the Prime Cleaning Services Jailbreak Triathlon is an annual event held at the Brandvlei Correctional Services facility at Rawsonville in the Western Cape.

Sporting a long distance event (2.2km swim/88km bike/22km run) and a shorter minimum security’ version (1.1km swim/44km bike/11km run), the event has the unique distinction of being the only Triathlon in Africa (and probably anywhere else in the world) to be held on a working day. It is known as the the Tri on a Fri, and has a very unique holiday atmosphere. Enjoy the photos.
