The brisk, sunbaked Orient Beach is upon us as the first destination for Standard Bank IRONMAN 70.3 Buffalo City in East London which will be held on 24 January 2016 - an exciting reminder that 2016 is going to be a good year. We would like to wish all athletes and supporters a warm welcome into 2016. May all your hard work and dedication in preparing for the race continue to motivate you to Never Stop Moving Forward.


We are excited to be joining you for an invigorating year of achieving the impossible and working together to make sure that this year becomes a successful attempt to grow Standard Bank IRONMAN within the sporting industry. While preparing for your travel we thought that we should keep you updated on the exciting journey that you are about to embark on, starting on the 23rdth of January 2016 at the Orient Beach.


All our athletes will get to enjoy the 1.9 kilometres warm swim followed by a challenging 90.1 kilometres bike course and end with a 21.1 kilometres flat run, all while being serenaded by the beauty of the beach and spectacular ocean views. Our team will be rolling out the red carpet from the start up until the finish line to make sure that your experience is a memorable one.




We would like to thank you all for the support and dedication throughout this journey.


See you at the start and finish line. #MovingForward
