The 4th annual Quadrathlon for St Francis Bay will take off on 5 November at the small boat harbour on the St Francis canals.

Participants in the SuperSpar Pam Golding Quadrathlon include professionals, the not-so-fit, adults and juniors. “Organisers are anticipating more youngsters and families to join in the fun,” says Richard Arderne of Pam Golding Properties, St Francis Bay.
