Welcome to the University of Cape Town News
The challenge is on
23 August 2004
The Sports Science Institute of South Africa is hosting the Multi-Sport Magazine Trimarathon on August 28, partly in aid of UCT's Ziphelele Mbambo Memorial Scholarship fund. At the event, starting at 20h00, a group of 18 participants will, every hour on the hour, alternately run, swim and cycle for 15 minutes, with a five-minute break or transition time between each discipline. Competitors can decide during which hour they wish to participate (subject to available slots, of course), or even tackle the full 12 hours of the event (special prizes are on offer for takers). Athletes are asked to raise individual sponsorships from family, friends and colleagues, money that will go towards the Ziphelele Mbambo Memorial Scholarship.
