TINMAN TRI SERIES

TINMAN TRI SERIES

The always popular TINMAN TRI SERIES, is back and takes place from Suncoast Beach in Durban, Kwa Zulu Natal.

With a relaxed atmosphere at the awesome Suncoast Beach venue, families can enjoy a festive vibe at the Tinman Tri Series, making it great day out for the family with some fun and fitness for everyone.

With full road closure on the cycle route that takes on MY Avenue, the event is great for families that want to keep moving!

COVID-19 SERIES UPDATE…..

After 7 very long stressful months, we finally have some good news… the TinMan Series is returning on the 27th September 2020 to Suncoast.

We have been jumping over hurdles, through hoops and into fires to try and get events going again. It has been no easy feat, especially when most of the decisions these days don’t make logical sense. But we have applied for all the permissions and things are looking better the they were a month ago.

We have set 3 dates between now and December to
stage the remaining 3 TinMan events:
27th September
25th October
22nd November

Entries for each event will only open after the previous one has passed. We know you are dying to get racing again and we can’t wait to see you back on the starting line!

Most busineses cannot survive being shut down for even 7 months, so this really is a DO or DIE situation for us and many others in the event industry.

There will be some changes to the event due to the Covid regulations, which we have outlined at the bottom of this email. However we are still very excited to get the TinMan Series back up and running and we look forward to allot of fun and excitment on race day.
