Hi-Tec Walker Bay Xtreme adds stage races to the mix

A two-day MTB stage race, two-day trail running stage race and a night run have been added to the event mix offered by the Hi-Tec Walkerbay Xtreme, a multi-day adventure sports festival to be held in Hermanus later this month.

It will be held from Friday 26 to Sunday 28 April.

“We are constantly looking for ways to make this event even more exciting and inclusive,” says Gerhardi Odendaal, CEO of Old School Group (OSG).

“Hermanus is a hotspot for adventure sports and we invite all sport lovers, no matter their ability, to study the events line-up and choose two, or even three, events to challenge themselves. OSG co-owns and runs the event in close association and in partnership with Hermanus and its people. The three new items offer participants an even greater selection.

“Stage races as well as night runs are becoming increasingly popular, so we wanted to incorporate them into our event because we know there is a market for it. Along with the triathlon, the MTB races and trail runs are key events for us and we want to offer our athletes who thrive in these disciplines the opportunity to challenge themselves even further.”

The Valley Xtreme MTB stage race takes place Friday and Saturday, and participants will cover approximately 60 km per day over the two days. The routes will take them to the beautiful Hemel-en-Aarde Valley.

The Blue Mountain Xtreme trail run on the same days includes stages of 19,1 km and 21 km. Both items offer scenic routes and breathtaking views of mountain and sea.

Endurance athletes who do not want to take part in a stage race, can choose between three distances – 20 km, 35 km and 60 km – in the MTB race or two distances – 21 km and 9 km – in the trail run on Saturday.

The third new item on the menu is the Twilight Xtreme night race, a 7,1 km run on Hermanus’ famous Cliff Path on Saturday. The first 50 entrants will receive LED Lenser head torches with their entry.

With 14 events to choose from, the Hi-Tec Walkerbay Xtreme offers something for everyone. All the old favourites are back too – the Big 6 Xtreme, sprint triathlon, MTB criterium, open water swim, cliff path runs and street mile, as well as the exciting swim-run-jump challenge, guaranteed to get the adrenalin pumping.

The event offers prize money in excess of R100 000 split across a number of events. The Big 6 Xtreme will be held over three days and participants will share a R30 000 prize purse.
