The Walkerbay Xtreme Sprint Triathlon took place early on 30 April 2017, under the eagle eyes of the team from Triathlon South Africa.

Unprecedented low ocean temperatures made the event wetsuit-compulsory.

A wet start set the scene for a cold swim, followed by a lung-busting climb up the Old Harbour pathway to T1. Athletes then set off on a spectacularly scenic, flat and fast 20km cycle before returning to T2 and finishing off with their run.

Winners Theo Blignaut and Celeste Renaud declared the race one of the “most fun and prettiest on the race calendar”.
