Neil Nortje

Has a slightly drunken bet ever changed your life?

2x full Ironman
10x half Ironman
10x 5150 Triathlons

This is what resulted from a bet Neil made with a friend one night.

2018 was the first time he took to the challenge and hasn’t turned back.

Training has brought balance, focus, risk and reward to his life.

By no means is Neil the model of an endurance athlete, and he’ll tell you just that.

But it is his perseverance that matters.

He sets the example for us all in that if you want to achieve something, it is possible. You just need to commit and put the work in.

Neil has his sights set on Ride The Karoo, Cape Town Cycle Tour and 3 half Ironman this year.

We look forward to seeing him add to his medal collection.
