Standard Bank is very pleased to see that its involvement with the IRONMAN® brand in South Africa has resulted in an expansion of the local series of events, and looking forward to witnessing the biggest triathlon ever to be staged in Kwa-Zulu Natal and the second biggest in Africa in terms of athlete numbers.

The 1.9km swim, 90.1km bike and 21.1km run will encapsulate some of the best elements of the East Coast City. The swim will take place at Snake Park Beach with the bike course heading along the M4 towards Zimbali. The run course will take athletes along the Promenade where spectators can be part of the action and welcome the athletes to the finish in front Suncoast, which will become race central consisting of the registration and expo venues, race office and the transition area.

The Standard Bank IRONMAN® 70.3 Durban was a long-term project that started more than three years ago and is finally here. Standard Bank would like to wish all athletes the best of luck and urge them to Never Stop Moving Forward during these last few weeks of training.
