Stillwater Sports, the organiser of South Africa’s premier off-road triathlon, the Fedhealth XTERRA presented by REHIDRAT® SPORT is excited to announce that the event will make its Port Elizabeth debut the weekend of 29 – 31 January 2016.
“We have a number of exciting changes in store for 2016,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports. “XTERRA Port Elizabeth will not be a traditional XTERRA SA Event. While it won’t feature an Urban course, it will have a ‘City Feel’ to it. It will also boast with an ocean swim, an element that has not been seen at XTERRA SA for quite some time now. Many athletes are also not aware of the fact that Port Elizabeth offers beautiful trails in the heart of the city. These trails will be utilised for the XTERRA bike and run courses.”
“Another exciting change to the XTERRA series will see each event featuring an XTERRA Kids Race,” continues Meyer. “Event weekends will start as follows: XTERRA kids on the Friday, followed by the XTERRA Full on the Saturday and finally the XTERRA Lite on the Sunday. Together with these exciting changes and the exceptional support received from Fedheatlh, we are looking forward to a truly memorable season of XTERRA racing.”
