B-Active Events



The Cape Ultra Triathlon, which is going into its 5th year and is traditionally held in October each year at Theewaterkloof Dam will be moved to the 6th of March 2022. The new date for the event comes after extensive review of the annual South African Triathlon calendar and the weather in the Villiersdorp area during October. The new date in March means that the traditional Durban Ultra Triathlon will now keep its 2021 date for the first weekend of August in sunny KZN. 

The previous October race date for the Cape Ultra was challenging says Race Director Damian Bradley. “We have previously had to cancel the swim due to freezing water and air temperatures in October, as well as battling the seasonal bees on the run course which are brought in to pollenate the fruit orchards in September. Moving the race to the new date in March will not only give athletes warmer water and weather, but it will also mean that the beautiful fruit orchards will be heavily laden with fruit and bees free”. The new race date will kick start the Western Cape Triathlon race calendar and give upcountry athletes an excellent reason to race the event which is now placed during the best weather period in the Cape.

The 2021 Cape Ultra Triathlon planned for the 24th of October will not take place in 2021 and all entries will be automatically moved over to the new date in March 2022. The 2022 Race entry fees will remain the same as the 2021 prices for all new registering athletes. We thank our Cape Ultra athletes for the continued support of the event since its inception in 2016 and we look forward to welcoming them back in March 2022.
