Great Teamwork | Karen, two friends and a bicycle

Tuesday 4th October 2016

The annual Freshpak Fitness Festival marked its 30th anniversary on Saturday 1 October in Clanwilliam, South Africa. The scenic outdoor surroundings, challenging routes, comradery and a sense of accomplishment are the reason athletes come back year after year. Due to enthusiastically loyal support over the years, the event has reached this momentous milestone and saw around 1,350 athletes geared up to compete in various swimming, cycling and running challenges. Every year the festival takes place in the heart of Rooibos country. It always pulls out all the stops with an exciting programme of multisport activities and entertainment. It has become a tradition for athletes, family, friends and travellers to descend on Clanwilliam to take part in and enjoy the great sporting and festive atmosphere.

Our own Karen Blackmore, from our Cape Town office, took to the water for the first part of the team triathlon with almost 400 other competitors and teams. As part of ‘Triple the Fun’, she bravely tackled the 800 metre swim, whilst her team mates Michelle Wallis and Lynn Morrison attacked the 20 kilometre cycle and 5 kilometre run finishing in a fantastic time of 1 hour 55 minutes and 16 seconds.

Everyone at the Capital International Group would like to congratulate Karen and her fellow team mates on this gruelling but fantastic achievement.
