Walkerbay Xtreme ‘holding the fort’

The Walkerbay Xtreme that is due to take place in April will go ahead as planned, for now.

In a statement, Walkerbay Xtreme said on Monday they will make a final decision within the next seven to ten days. “We are just as concerned about the recent outbreak of the Covid-19 disease and the vast number of events that have been cancelled over the last couple of days.

“Like you, we are all uncertain about what the immediate outcome or reactions should be to all the measures put in place by the various Health Authorities and Government Departments.

“We can only asses the facts at hand and hope to make the correct decision on that.” The statement goes on to say that these facts and scenarios change daily. “As such, we are holding the fort for the next week or so regarding the event.”

WBX-team based their decision on the following facts:

. The event date is 24 – 27 April 2020

. It falls outside the immediate 30 day ban on public gatherings of 100 people and more. This may change though.

. The Overstrand Municipality, and the Walkerbay Region gets a massive, much needed financial injection from the WBX. It would therefor be ideal not to postpone or cancel the event.

. The number of entries to date have been amazing, 2020 is really building up to be the biggest WBX so far, by far.

“However, the health and safety of our competitors, staff, sponsors and the Hermanus community are paramount and we will take a decision, formally, within the next seven to 10 days, after having considered all available facts and sentiment at hand.

“For now, please keep an eye on our social media platforms and website for information regarding the continuation, postponement, rescheduling and or cancellation of the event,” concluded the statement.Walkerbay Xtreme, offers a multi-day multi-discipline adventure sports experience. The event features a host of sporting activities from running, swimming and cycling to functional fitness and paddling.
