We’ve just released the BeyondTransition Guide to Ironman South Africa. It’s our best triathlon guide yet and gives you almost everything you need to get across the finish line – bikes, training and fitness are not included though.
Our race guides are designed to help you, normal triathletes, race the best that you can in your big races, by providing you with the best information about the race. For Ironman South Africa we have detailed course descriptions and maps – including elevation and gradient profiles - that are not only cooler than the official ones – but prettier.
We give you tips for the swim, bike and run course – not generic tips for running an Ironman marathon – but how to run the Ironman South Africa Marathon. It’s a small but important difference that can make or break your triathlon.
And you don’t have to take our word for it. We’ve gone through hundreds of race reports from triathletes who’ve raced Ironman South Africa before and selected the best tips that they have on offer – so you can read about their experiences – and because we’re nice you can even go back to their blogs and ding out more about their Ironman journeys.
Weather… I guess you know that 2011 was an exceptional year – and that 2010 was hard – but do you know why? We put detailed percentages down on the chance of you suffering a bad headwind on the way back to Port Elizabeth on the bike – critical wouldn’t you say for your pacing strategy.
The we have some pretty cool course flyby videos of IMSA - covering the whole of the swim, bike and run course – plus loads of other videos and photos to give you a detailed feeling for the triathlon.
Visualisation is a key to success and having read our race guide – you will have one big key inyour hand come race day. Use the BeyondTransition Race Guide to Ironman South Africa to unlock your best Ironman race time ever.
Oh….it’s free as well
Enjoy and happy racing
Finally it would be great if you can share some of the pages on twitter, facebook or google plus as that helps ensure that we can do more race guides in future. You can also get badges (look at the bottom left of your screen and click where it says BADGES)
