Standard Bank IRONMAN

Standard Bank and IRONMAN South Africa entered into a sponsorship partnership that will secure the long-term sustainability of one of the country’s premier endurance events while at the same time enabling Standard Bank to extend its brand reach to the fast-growing sport of triathlon.

The sponsorship will involve all of World Endurance Africa Holdings’ major event properties, IRONMAN South Africa, IRONMAN 70.3 South Africa and the 5150 African Triathlon Series.

Triathlon – and IRONMAN in particular – exemplifies all the qualities that Standard Bank stands for: hard work, dedication, endurance and commitment. Ironman offers Standard Bank a single entry point into all three sporting codes. The quality of IRONMAN South Africa’s development programme and the aspirational nature of the sport, which promotes a healthy, positive lifestyle, were also major points of attraction for Standard Bank.

Standard Bank IRONMAN 70.3 Durban

The Standard Bank IRONMAN 70.3 Durban event will be held on 19 June in the coastal city. Launched in 2015, the Durban triathlon’s seamless organisation, gruelling yet breath-taking course and enthusiastic support have made it an unmissable event on the sporting calendar for triathletes from far and wide. 

This year, a total of 3 023 athletes will be participating, compared to 2015’s 2 914. We’re also excited to report that 34 countries from around the globe will be represented, including nine from Africa, making this year’s Standard Bank IRONMAN 70.3 Durban a truly international endurance event.

More traction from foot traffic and tourists is also expected due to the fact that the triathlon is now established in the city. Undoubtedly, World Cup winning legend Springbok John Smit will be amongst those who will be giving their heart to the challenge as well fellow Boks Ollie Le Roux and Stefan Terblanche. They will be pacing through some of Durban’s most charming areas, with retired Protea Andre Nel and former Sharks player John Slade together with them.

The cooler season allows for weather that should provide perfect triathlon conditions. That, combined with our skills and support, KZN’s unique beauty and hospitality, and the excitement of the athletes, should make for an unforgettable 2016 Standard Bank IRONMAN 70.3 Durban.
