About the race
CHALLENGECAPETOWN is more than just a triathlon; it’s a family fitness festival, incorporating events for triathletes and their supporters – as well as the wider Cape Town athletic community – over Race Weekend, including a Family Fun Run and an Open Water Swim Challenge.
The point-to-point triathlon kicks off with a 1.9km cold water swim at Big Bay (wetsuit compulsory), followed by a flat and fast 90km cycle, and culminating in an undulating 21km run through the City Centre before sprinting along the red carpet to finish line at Cape Town High School, situated at the foot of Table Mountain – one of the New 7 Wonders of the World.
The race course is spectator friendly, and athletes are treated to magnificent views all the way.
Bring the family for an extended break, and close your triathlon season in style.
