The Western Cape’s favourite multisport event – the Freshpak Fitness Festival will be celebrating its 31st anniversary this year and will be taking place in Clanwilliam on Saturday, 30 September 2017. The scenic outdoor surroundings, challenging routes, comradery and a sense of accomplishment are the reason athletes come back year after year to compete in various swimming, cycling and running challenges.
The day kicks off with the 1.5km or 3km swim in the beautiful Clanwilliam dam, one of the best water-sport destinations in the Western Cape. The swim is followed by the duathlon (5km run/20km cycle/2.5km run) and biathlon (5km run/20km cycle) where participants put their speed and endurance to the test through the varied and challenging terrain. The main event, which opens the triathlon season for most athletes, is a sprint triathlon (800m swim/20km cycle/5km run) and a crowd favourite with many participants travelling nationally to compete. All athletes can compete individually or as part of a team in a relay. The younger kids can look forward to the FitKids challenge (1km run, 200m swim, 1km run) and the Run for Fun (1km).
