It’s a last-minute shakeup!

Still in pole position, but now sporting a new partner, @michaellordtri is still confident that he’ll retain his unbroken record at Cape. A last-minute injury has sidelined @jpburger1, forcing the Stellenbosch athlete to watch this year from the sidelines. Michael has drafted speedster @llewellyngroeneveldwith a last-minute call up.

Llewellyn has speed in buckets, taking the win at @ryansandes @redbullza downhill run at @Meerendal this week. The question, as was asked of the Jamaican Bobsled Team, can lightning swim in cold water? We’ll find out this weekend.


What is Torpedo SwimRun and who are the #pioneers

Originating in Sweden, this new sport ditches triathlon’s flashy gear for off-road and open-water adventure. Raced along coastal and inland waterways, the route is designed around the natural environment with distances varying from race to race. With multiple swims and run segments and athletes racing self-sufficiently – they swim and run in the same gear – it’s the wildest sport going.
Growing rapidly in popularity, there are now 450 races around the globe. Torpedo launched the first SwimRun in Cape Town in 2017, with a national Series rolling out from 2018.

The #pioneers are top athletes from other sporting disciplines that are leading the charge in this new sport

Enter the new race in the Torpedo African Series, taking place in Wilderness in September – Torpedo SwimRun Wild
