Kyaninga Triathlon – Fort Portal, Uganda
Undoubtedly one of the most scenic triathlons on the African continent, if not the world, the Kyaninga
Triathlon takes place on the backdrop of Lake Kyaninga, an extant volcanic crater lake over 200 metres
deep! And it’s this sleeping volcano that provides the warmth and clarity of the beautifully turquoise
waters where the swim takes place. A quick run up the side of the volcano and its onto an adventurous
off-road bike course through rural Ugandan villages, with kids cheering all the way. The finale is a run
around the rim of the volcano itself with breath-taking views of the Rwenzori Mountains, home to 7 of
Africa’s highest peaks. What more could you want.
