“We’ve decided to use the fantastic location of Slanghoek Valley outside Rawsonville where we recently held the Slanghoek Triathlon,” says Pieter du Plessis, race director and founder of Iqela Events, the host for the popular Western Cape Jailbreak Triathlon. “We’re very excited to be revitalising this well-known triathlon.”

This themed race starts at the Breeland Cellar in the Slanghoek Valley, with athletes and sponsors nominated to be “parole officers” or “prime suspects”. All athletes compete hard to win their “freedom” at the end of the race, and great prizes are up for grabs.


Iqela Events specialises in organising exciting outdoor sporting and athletic events in picturesque surroundings, with fun for the whole family included at most events. For more information visit
