Benguela Cove is delighted to announce that they will be hosting their first multi-discipline event in association with TriSport at Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate in Walker Bay, Hermanus.
The Adventure Weekend will include solo format day and night events over the two-day weekend. Complete all three events with the most amazing scenery as a backdrop. Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate is a 200-hectare lifestyle farm and exclusive luxury estate which offers breathtaking views of the Bot River lagoon and Overberg mountains. Spectators can enjoy the event from the Benguela Cove Boathouse on the day and watch as participants compete in this beautiful setting.
This two-day event will take place on the weekend of Friday, 27 and Saturday, 28 November 2015. Participants can enter to swim either 600m or 2km in the salt-water lagoon. This challenging yet protected swim offers the most amazing scenery and breathtaking views of the Bot River lagoon and Overberg mountains as a backdrop. The night cycle of either 9km or 36km curls between the vineyards and is a fast, non-technical route with very little elevation. The same route is used for the 5.5km and 9km, night or day, single track trail run.
Wine by the glass of all Benguela Cove’s award-winning wines will be available at the Benguela Cove Club House as well as beers and soft drinks. Participants and spectators can relax after the events by indulging in a delectable chocolate or cheese and wine pairing available all weekend at our tasting room.
