What is CTC?

the corporate triathlon challenge (CTC)

The Isuzu Corporate Triathlon Challenge powered by Algoa FM Short Distance triathlon will be 10% of the IRONMAN African Championship race set to take place the following day. The distance consists of a 380-meter swim, 18-kilometre bike and 4.2-kilometre run. While the Long Distance triathlon consists of a 760-meter swim, 36-kilometre bike and 7-kilometre run. Relay teams of two or three athletes will be allowed to enter the Short Distance. The Long Distance is for individuals only.

It is not just a case of going the distance, but also a challenge of discovering the hidden athletic talents of your colleagues, boss or employees! Who will do the swim? Who fancies themselves a bit of a cyclist? Any runners in the office? Get your team together to enter, and issue the challenge to your corporate rivals. What better way to show up your biggest competitors in the corporate arena than through an old-fashioned show of athleticism, guts, and glory!
