Helly Hansen, the world’s leading all-weather sportswear brand, will be the presenting sponsor for the Eleven Sun City, Africa’s toughest triathlon, at Sun City in South Africa’s North West Province.
The 2016 edition of the popular spring event will take place on the weekend of 15-16 October at Sun City leisure resort, where Helly Hansen will offer high quality prizes at the event, both to podium finishers and lucky-draw prizewinners. This is in addition to the cash prize money already on offer.
“We are pleased to be the presenting sponsor of the Eleven Sun City. We like that it involves two days of high quality triathlon racing for all fitness levels and age groups,” said Erwin Winter of Helly Hansen South Africa.
“In addition to product prizes, we will have a strong Helly Hansen presence at the event and all participants and supporters will be able to see and purchase our range of high quality clothing, ideal for during and after competition. We’ll obviously be running special Eleven Sun City prices on all items too,” added Winter.
“In celebration of Eleven Sun City’s 10th year we welcome Helly Hansen’s increased commitment this year. Eleven Sun City, presented by Helly Hansen not only has a range of separate triathlons over varying distances, but also offers a unique multi-day multi-sport event, the Eleven Squared, where athletes can compete in the sprint distance triathlon on the Saturday and also in the Olympic distance triathlon on the Sunday,” explained Race Director, Ryan Landy.
“We combine their race times from both events to determine the Triathlon King and Queen for the event. The bike leg is non-drafting and the race course is quite demanding with short, but steep hills on both the bike and run courses, earning it the label of Africa’s Toughest Triathlon,” added Landy.
