IRONMAN 2018 DisEmbark for Atlantic Seaboard & Southern Suburbs

May 4, 2018

Our 14 week IRONMAN  2018 Embark journey turned out to be a great one again. It’s the 5th year we have gone as a team to Nelson Mandela Bay, and again had over a 95% completion rate! Our athletes were on a combination of personalised programs and group training, and all the athletes benefit from the supported long rides and runs!  Our long Thursday night runs and  BIG weekend sessions build the endurance and mental capacity that the athletes need to complete the race! The highlight of the program is a fun filled training camp weekend away at the Westcoast Nature Reserve for the Warm Water Weekend Triathlon, and this year was another amazing 3 days of training, racing and socialising! The race on the 15th April was a amazing day out for all athletes, family and spectators and supporters!
