26 - 28 APRIL 2019
SPORTS ADVENTURE FESTIVAL FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
The Blue Mountain Xtreme 17km Trail Run returned, together with the introduction of a new 10km distance. Local runner Jimmy Bongezi was crowned the official winner of the 17km run.
It was an afternoon of fun for the kids aged 8 – 13 participating in the inaugural HI-TEC Walkerbay Xtreme Junior Triathlon – an event that aims to introduce young participants to multisport in a safe, fun and non-threatening way.
It was a double deal for Xterra World Champ – and European, Asian & African 70.3 Half Ironman Champ – Bradley Weiss, as well as Stellenbosch tri coach and triathlon star Vicky van der Merwe, who both won the inaugural Walkerbay Xtreme MTB Triathlon, hot on the heels of their Sprint Triathlon win earlier in the morning.
Standings Updated to 29 April 2018: The Big 6 Xtreme requires an athlete to complete the six premier events that form part of the HI-TEC Walkerbay Xtreme. Earning points based on their performance in these events (a percentage, relative to that of the leading Big 6 Xtreme participant), these athletes compete for top honours over the course of four days.
The 2018 Walkerbay Xtreme Open Water Swim returned with another stunning day in the ocean, as skins and wetsuit swimmers braved the long 2.5km stretch between the New and Old Harbour. This year, the event also saw the introduction of a new distance – the shorter 600m swim within the Old Harbour for those who want the challenge of an ocean swim without the commitment of a long distance.
Xterra World Champ – and European, Asian & African 70.3 Half Ironman Champ – Bradley Weiss smashed the competition with a convincing win in the 2018 edition of the HI-TEC Walkerbay Xtreme Sprint Triathlon on 29 April 2018.
The Urban Xtreme MTB Criterium is always a crowd pleaser, and this year was no different. We saw some incredible talent showing off their skills in this short-course technical race, made even better by the awesome spectator support and great vibe.
