Events and Dates: 

24 March 2024 - Tinman Langebaan

03 November 2024  - Tinman Langebaan


Due to Easter falling over the last weekend of March this year and SA Champs on the first weekend of April we are having Tinman Langebaan on Sunday 24 March.

However, it is full moon on 24 March and peak low tide will be just after 9am. This will make swimming challenging especially for the Challenge and Sprint distances. We have spoken to TSA and have decided to move the start times of the different distances in order to allow optimal swimming conditions. We will therefore start with the shorter swim distances first ending with the longer distances to allow for deep enough water, tail current and warmer water temperatures.

The order of events on the day will be as follows:

Registration Times: 

07:00 to 08:30: 5km Run, Sprint Duathlon

07:00 to 08:45: Challenge Tri & Sprint Tri, Super Sprint Tri, Mini Tri
