The 2017 edition of the HI-TEC Walkerbay Xtreme has finally arrived, and we can’t wait to welcome you to Hermanus this coming weekend.

BIG 6 XTREME ATHLETES: Please take note of the following important information as you get ready to #FindYourXtreme.

Note that this pertains specifically to your Big 6 experience, and that a general email will be sent out as well.

You will receive special VIP Big 6 accreditation when you collect your race pack on Friday afternoon or Saturday morning.

The VIP parking area is located alongside the FNB building in town. Please show your accreditation daily in order to gain access to the parking. Please note, there is limited space, so only one car per athlete can be accommodated.

Located in tent #6. Please show your accreditation in order to gain access to this area, and ensure that your accreditation is visible within the tent. Your family / significant other will also be allowed access into the VIP area, along with you.

You have 1 complimentary massage with the massage team. To ensure you have the timeslot you are interested in (space is limited per slot), please CLICK HERE to pre-book. Alternatively, please book on the day, directly with the massage crew. They will have a booking sheet available. Remember that any additional sessions per day are at your own cost.

The Laundry Corporation will be doing a daily sport kit wash for you. Please drop off your laundry (in the bag provided in your race pack) at the athletes’ registration office each day, by 15h30. You can collect your clean laundry the following day from 06h15 from the same location. The Walkerbay Xtreme team will drop off and collect your laundry from the laundromat. However, should you wish to drop and collect your own laundry, please chat to the team at the race office for details and directions.

Each race has a different start set-up, but the Big 6 Athletes will be given preference and you will be called to the front of each event.

Unprecedented low ocean temperatures may result in the triathlon being wetsuit-compulsory. Please bring your wetsuit along. The triathlon will be monitored by referees from Triathlon South Africa.

Have a great weekend!
