It has been a long time coming, three years in the works and finally; we have a few days to go before Standard Bank IRONMAN® 70.3 takes over Durban, known as one of the best host cities in South Africa.


Standard Bank IRONMAN® has been steadily making its mark as one of the best triathlons in South Africa, and rapidly taking over the triathlon world.  The undeniable dedication from the athletes is inspiring and the undying support from the fans is electrifying. This is a true indication of how Standard Bank and IRONMAN® has taken triathlon in South Africa to another level.


With Raynard Tissink providing valuable tips to athletes in preparation for their race, and the triathlon community showing their appreciation and support of the sponsorship, it is only fitting to say that we are all counting down the days until the race on 2 August 2015, where athletes will complete the 113km race, which consist of a 1.9-km swim, a 90.1-km bike and a 21.1-km run.


Standard Bank will also be adding something a little more exciting as part of the Durban race by running a social media campaign starting on race day, which will be a call to action for spectators and athletes to share their story of how they Never Stop Moving Forward.  We hope that the IRONMAN® athletes will help to inspire us all to keep going, exceeding in all that we set our minds to do.


See you at the finish line!
