Kids Take Center Stage in New XTERRA South Africa Series
The organizers of South Africa’s leading off-road triathlon, the Fedhealth XTERRA, are excited to introduce an XTERRA Kids event to both XTERRA Buffelspoort (North West Province) and XTERRA Nelson Mandela Bay (Eastern Cape).
“Introducing an XTERRA Kids event to Buffelspoort and 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 also received a number of requests from locals to host a kids event in Buffelspoort. We value the feedback and are very happy to announce that Buffelspoort, Nelson Mandela Bay and Grabouw will now follow the exact same event schedule, with the XTERRA Kids taking place on the Friday, XTERRA Full on the Saturday, XTERRA Lite and PUMA Trail Run on the Sunday. We are really excited by this change and look forward to welcoming families to all three events.”
Says Jeremy Yatt, Principal Officer of Fedhealth: “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) and 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.
