After losing their venue and then being given the runaround by the a prospective host, the organisers of South Africa’s biggest and most successful annual jailbreak have announced that the 2013 event will indeed take place at Brandvlei Dam as in years before — you will however not only have to escape from prison on the day, but from work as well. Prison Break has nothing on these guys!
South African athletes could be forgiven for despairing ever-so-slightly a while back as BSG announced they would no longer be sponsoring the popular BSG Tri Series, Spec Savers announced they would no longer be sponsoring IronMan South Africa, and the Jailbreak Triathlon lost its venue as Brandvlei Prison announced it was no longer willing to tolerate the annual spate of “Escapees”. Bad news comes in threes they say.
I have not yet taken part in the Jailbreak Triathlon, but it lines up neatly in the triathlon calendar as preparation for 70.3 and IronMan South Africa hopefuls and is a firm favourite for all who love to swim, bike, run.
