The Hi-Tec Walkerbay Xtreme taking place from 26-28 April 2019. is the ideal weekend to getaway with mates. It has everything you could want as a young, fit and healthy person seeking an active – yet fun time away with friends!
There are a whole host of sporting activities to choose from, each with their own unique twist to keep it interesting. Are you into your running? Bring along your digsmates and make the trail running events an in-house competition.
Curious how that could work?
Get your housemates to enter their respective events and assign reasonable times that they should make. Then predict winners. Come Friday morning, gather the troops and complete either the 10km or 20km run – followed by a major chill out for the rest of the day in the race village and an evening braai of course. Then wake up nice and fresh on Saturday morning for the second trail trot, ending off with our fun Twilight Xtreme night run.
Now that you are buzzing with endorphins from all the exercise, tally the numbers, declare the winner and celebrate the victory or loss at one of the amazing bars and restaurants on the strip.Sound like a vibe? We think so but adapt it how you like!
Or maybe you’re keen for something a little different, a little daring, a little swim-run-jumpy? If so, then the See & Sand Xtreme is definitely for you and your friends!
The See & Sand Xtreme is a thrilling adventure comprising a 400m Swim, 1.5km Run, Dreunkrans Cliff Jump, 400m Swim, 1km Run, and finishing off with a final 500m Swim. It’s epic to do with a group and you will talk about each other’s unique experiences for days after. Then there are the mountain bike races, the triathlons, the unique off-road xathlon, the open water swims and even paddling! There are so many sporting events that make this weekend away worthwhile. Choose 1 or 10, it’s up to you.
But perhaps an even bigger pull to the festival is the picturesque beauty of the town, ocean and surrounding mountains you’ll get to explore just over 1 hour’s drive from Cape Town and Stellenbosch.
Hermanus is the definition of a hidden gem and Walkerbay Xtreme wants to share it with you! The heart of the festival is the spectator-friendly Race Village and main stage in Market Square. Events are spread out into surrounding areas from the New Harbour to Voëlklip, mostly starting or finishing in the Race Village.
When you have a break from competing or supporting there are so many other activities to keep you enthused. From paragliding, shark cage diving, hiking, whale watching and sunbathing at one of the many gorgeous beaches to exploring the award-winning wine farms that dot the Hemel-en-Aarde valley, or settling down after the day’s activities at one of the many restaurants.
“Hermanus caters for every taste. So, rally up your friends, get those entries in now and come savour in this unforgettable experience with us in one of the most breath-taking coastal towns.”
