Winning at Slanghoek Triathlon 2018

This year we took part in the very first Cellar Challenge at the Iqela Slanghoek Triathlon hosted by Breëland Cellar. This new category under the Sprint Distance was created for Breedekloof wineries to compete against one another in teams consisting of a staff member, ambassador or industry friend or supplier.

On Saturday, our MTB Sprint Triathlon Team came first in the Cellar Challenge and took 2nd place overall in the MTB Sprint Triathlon Teams category. Well done to Marius Louw (CEO + Swimmer), Johan De Wet (Director + MTB Rider) and Marno Erasmus (Logistics + Runner).

The Road Sprint Triathlon took place on Sunday and our team will be bragging until next year this time with their 1st place in the Cellar Challenge (we’re still not sure if there were any other cellars) but even greater, the team finished first as overall winners in their category. Go Team! Congrats to Hendrik Botha (Chairman’s son + Swimmer), Marius Alberts (Brand Manager + Road Rider) and Ed Beukes (PR, Media, Direct Sales + Runner).

We hope to see some more cellars join in the fun next year and take on the Slanghoek Triathlon Cellar Challenge. Thank you to Iqela Events for another well-organised and beautiful event.
