Wow, what a massive season we have just seen, which reached a crechendo with IronMan SA Champs. 15 Cape Multi Triathletes attempted this 226km triathlon and live feeds ensured that all our non-participating members were glued to their smart-phones! Congratulations to each athlete who embarked on the IronMan journey. You have inspired so many to follow in your footsteps.
