The organizers of South Africa’s leading off-road triathlon, the Fedhealth XTERRA, are excited to introduce an XTERRA Kids event to Nelson Mandela Bay at the end of January.

“Introducing an XTERRA Kids event to Nelson Mandela Bay has been long overdue,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports.

“Each year we are overwhelmed by the support that the XTERRA Kids receives in Grabouw.

“We have received a number of requests and are very happy to announce that Buffels-poort, Nelson Mandela Bay and Grabouw will now follow the exact same event schedule. We are really excited by this change and look forward to welcoming families to the events.”

Jeremy Yatt, Principal Officer of Fedhealth said, “what made XTERRA really appeal to us, is the fact that it allows the whole family to be involved, whether in a team, in the kids events, or in the Lite and Full. Family values lie close to our hearts as a Scheme.”

Junior Warriors will be able to enter one of three age categories:

•6-8 years (50m Swim, 1,5km Cycle,

1km Run),

•9-11 years (100m Swim, 5km Cycle,

2km Run)

•12-14 years (200m Swim, 10km Cycle, 3km Run)

All Fedhealth XTERRA Kids entrants can look forward to receiving a fun goodie bag, while medals will be awarded to all finishers.

The entry fee is R60 per participant. The event schedule is as follows: Friday, 29 January Fedhealth XTERRA Kids,

  • Saturday, 30 January Fedhealth XTERRA Full, Sunday, 31 January Fedhealth XTERRA Lite, Sunday, 31 January PUMA Trail Run. Entries at entries@stillwatersports.com or visit www.stillwatersports.com
