Experience the ultimate African bushveld bash at the 5150 Bela Bela Triathlon at Forever Resorts Warmbaths, Bela Bela, South Africa. Athletes swim 1.5km in the ski dam on the resort, bike 40km northbound on the hilly D10-Alma Road and run a flat, undulating 10km course in the resort. The bushveld resort setting makes the race a great triathlon weekend get-away and it is close enough for the large Gauteng triathlon community to travel to, while providing the ideal setting for an African getaway to international athletes. Forever Resorts Warmbaths features a range of activities including water skiing, quad biking, private game reserve drives, water slides and naturally heated outdoor pools, as well as a spa and indoor/outdoor hydro with therapeutic natural springs for the ultimate post-race relaxation.
The race features an R85 000 prize purse and 500 Hy-Vee 5150 US Champs ranking points plus 10 Hy-Vee 5150 US Champs slots per gender, per age group.
