Nelson Mandela Bay, the home of IRONMAN in Africa, plays host to the latest event in the Standard Bank 5150 African Triathlon Series with the addition of the Standard Bank 5150 Nelson Mandela Bay and Standard Bank FUNTRI set to take place on the 3 December 2017.
The hugely popular standard distance triathlon series has been running in South Africa since 2011 with events in Bela Bela and Germiston. The series made its debut in Nelson Mandela Bay in 2016 at King's Beach.
The standard distance race in Nelson Mandela Bay is great as an introduction for first-time athletes but challenging enough for seasoned athletes. The race is also ideal as a warm up for the Standard Bank IRONMAN 70.3 South Africa in January giving athletes the opportunity to experience the flow of big event while becoming accustomed to the non-drafting nature of the race.
For those looking for something shorter, there will be the option of the Standard Bank FUNTRI. The FUNTRI will feature a 450-metre swim, 20km bike and 5km run and both team and individual entries are available for the FUNTRI. The FUNTRI will take place at the same time, on the same course covering approximately half the distance and will finish at the same finish line as the Standard Bank 5150 Nelson Mandela Bay.

Both races will start at Kings Beach with the transition area located in the Kings Beach parking area. Athletes will then start the cycle, exiting the Kings Beach parking area turning left onto Marine Drive to enjoy the beautiful scenery along the coast before heading back to transition. The run course will showcase the recently renovated Kings Beach precinct and open air amphitheater as athletes are taken along the coastline past Nelson Mandela Bays premier public beaches before returning back towards the finish line at Kings Beach.
