The Series offers a fantastic way to stay fit in a casual, friendly and safe environment. Participants of all ages and fitness abilities are encouraged to join in the fun of the Series which is great for families.

Season 9 kicked off with Round 1 on Sunday 6th October 2013 and will conclude with Round 11 on Sunday 30th March 2014.

All disciplines run simultaneously so you choose which one you'd like to do on a specific race day.

Series is for Members Only - Series Membership is a ONCE OFF fee of R50 (to secure your Season 9 race number).


Despite rising costs in almost everything associated with the Series we have decided to keep most the entry fees the same as the previous TWO Seasons

Beach Run/Walk - R40
Kids 1km Run/Walk - R30

2km swimmers to use yellow ORS swim caps whilst 1km swimmers to use NEW Purple ORS swim cap - these are available at R20 at registration and at beach.
