BSG Energade Triseries
BSG has been passionately involved in South African triathlon since first becoming involved in the BSG Energade Triseries as co-title sponsors in 2008, culminating in BSG owning the rights and title to what is now the largest sprint event series on the African continent. We are immensely proud of the impact that, together with you, we have made: primarily making a difference in education by supporting the LEAP Science and Maths Schools, and by inspiring thousands to participate and experience the feeling of being healthy and happy.
The final event of the 2012 BSG Triseries took place on Sunday the 2nd of December at Emerald Casino in Vanderbijlpark. This popular triathlon series saw athletes competing in 5 events, which took place from September to December across the country. Consisting of a 600m swim, a 20km cycle and a 5km run, the Triseries is a fun and accessible race for all and introduces many “first-timers” to the sport of triathlon.
Every participant in this year’s Triseries became an educational hero by making a difference and raising money for LEAP Science and Maths Schools simply by entering the BSG Triseries! The MyPledge initiative on the BSG Multisport website also enabled Triseries athletes to encourage their network of friends, family and colleagues to pledge on their behalf to raise even more funds for the LEAP Schools, who provide education opportunities for learners from disadvantaged backgrounds within South Africa.

Since my first World Triathlon Championships in 2009, I dreamt of being the best junior triathlete in the world. After four years of hard work, dedication, experience, sacrifice and racing, I become the Junior World Triathlon Champion. With this, I was the first ever African to claim an ITU World Championship title.
I decided to leave for New Zealand two weeks before the Junior Men World Championships, to adapt to the 11 hour time zone difference, get used to the weather and be as fresh as possible on race day.
Things heated up in the 2012 Triseries Challenge at Sunday’s race which took place at the Islands Estate in Hartbeespoort. Schools, tertiary institutions and corporates battled it out at the sold out event for the top position on the leader boards. In the BSG Triseries Challenge, points are accumulated based on the aggregation of finishing positions for all entrants in their respective categories, across the Corporate, Tertiary and School Triseries Challenge categories.

The second event of the 2012 BSG Triseries race took place on Sunday 14th of October at Abrahamsrus in Sasolburg. The morning got off to a cool start but soon warmed up to a beautiful day on the banks of the Vaal River.
