Rooibos country will once again pull out all the stops for the 32ndFreshpak Fitness Festival, which takes place in Clanwilliam in the Western Cape. Providing all the features of a true multisport event, it has become a tradition for athletes, family, friends and travellers to descend on the quaint town to take part in and enjoy the great sporting and festive atmosphere. The day kicks off with the 1.5km or 3km swim in the Clanwilliam dam, which is followed by the duathlon (5km run/20km cycle/2.5km run) and biathlon (5km run/20km cycle). The main event, which opens the triathlon season for most athletes, is a sprint triathlon (800m swim/20km cycle/5km run). 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).
