This basically sums up why I decided to do a swim only event. Since I am new to open water swimming I am taking every opportunity to swim in a dam, river, ocean or canal. Its also so beneficial to be in a race environment as much as possible.
This has to be one of our favorite races on the calendar. With online entries, goodie bags, pre race give aways there was a great build up to the weekends activities. With all the hype built up race day did not disappoint.
Cape Town Marathon 12km Peace Trail was my first official trail in 2016. I remember the nerves
and excitement for the unknown that was ahead. For some reason this year, I had the same
feelings on the start line despite having done the race before.
