TriRock Robben Island, the historic triathlon on Robben Island taking place on the 1st November 2014, has introduced team building and corporate packages into the fold for the upcoming event this year.
After a sell-out event in 2013, the TriRock Robben Island will be extending their offering to corporates who would like to get involved with team building and corporate hospitality, through a day of sports, culture, history and breath-taking scenery. The involvement will also allow for branding opportunities on the island and the sponsoring of several development athletes on the day.
The event will consist of two triathlon races – a shorter triathlon race comprised of a 400m swim, 14km cycle and 4km run (4:14:4) for individuals of all shapes and ability and then a longer race made up of a 800m swim, 28km cycle and 8km run (8:28:8) for more professional athletes.
TriRock Robben Island will also offer teams the opportunity to stay over on the island itself in Robben Island Prison, where they will receive a tour and talk by a prison warden and ex-prisoner. They will also get the chance to relax over dinner and drinks served by Primi Piatti with other participants before the big day.
“We have seen an increased interest of corporates getting involved in big sporting events and are thrilled to be able to have incorporated this element into the event this year”, said Grant Kunneke, event organiser. “Not only does this allow for a great marketing opportunity and the chance to give back to community it also offers teams the chance to take part in a completely unique event, and one that is packed with historic and cultural significance”.
