Dear Namibian sportspeople
 
It is with great pleasure that LEMA events announces the birth of a new event – the  TINMAN ! a weekend of riding,running and swimming in Uis – Home of the Brandberg. Due to covid-19 restrictions we have to limit the number of athletes to 200. 
This event it sponsored by AfriTin Mining, the proud owners of the Uis Tin Mine’ 
You can run or ride or swim or"you can enter the TINMAN and do all 3 events" . In order to qualify for the title of TINMAN you need to all three disciplines. It is however not a traditional triathlon with first the swim, then ride, then run. You can do the ride, then take a break, then do the run, take a break and then do the swim.
 or just run or just ride.
