Nelson Mandela Bay—named after the freedom fighter and world icon of peace — hosts Africa's most renowned triathlon. An IRONMAN Championship race that pulses with South African spirit, experience the breathtaking courses and feverish support at this postcard-perfect beachside destination.

This race offers 75 qualifying slots for the 2020 IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawai'i.


The one-loop 3.8 km (2.4 mile) swim starts at Hobie Beach. Athletes head out parallel from the pier and turn left. The course then goes past Humewood Beach all the way to Kings Beach before turning and heading back towards Hobie Beach.

The two-loop 180.2km (112 mile) bike course takes athletes out on Marine Drive towards Schoenmakerskop and from there via Sardinia Bay Road to the Village of Seaview. Enjoy sweeping views of the ocean, the rugged coastline and adjacent countryside.

The four-loop 42.2 km (26.2 mile) run course spans the Summerstrand and Humewood beach fronts. Athletes will enjoy the support of the spectators all the way on this flat and fast course. This may as well be considered the triathlon world's longest party.
