Shaun Wolfaardt (1:49:04) and Hannah Newman (2:06:48) were the overall winners of the men’s and women’s categories of the inaugural Auto & General Cross Triathlon in Steyn City on Saturday.
“We are so incredibly proud of the winners – and of course all those who took part in this very exciting first event,” said Ricardo Coetzee, Head of Auto & General Insurance.
Some of South Africa’s best-known triathletes, including Wolfaardt, Newman, Nico Sterk, Armand du Toit and Adriaan Myburgh, took part, as well as seven-time world champion Conrad Stoltz and two-time world duathlon champion Emma Pallant.
The prizes for the winners were R10,000 for both the men and women who finished first, with the second place winners taking home R6,000 each and R2500 awarded to the third place holders.
“It was an incredible day for the cross triathlon community, I had so much fun and look forward to being back here in Steyn City around this time next year,” said Conrad Stoltz.
