The Hi-Tec Walkerbay Xtreme (WBX), a unique adventure sports festival that comprises of twelve disciplines, will return to Hermanus between 29 April and 1 May 2017. After successfully staging the inaugural WBX in 2015, the organisers used 2016 to plan a bigger and better event.
Adventure seekers looking for the ultimate thrill in a spectacular setting should diarise 1 November 2016, when online entries will officially open. Entries for each discipline will be limited, and it is expected that the entry limit will be reached quickly.
Epic Test of Speed, Stamina, Strength & Skill – “The Walkerbay Xtreme is unlike any other event in South Africa,” says Rick Oosthuyzen, organiser of the Hi-Tec Walkerbay Xtreme. “It is an urban adventure and extreme challenge rolled into one that promises to test the speed, stamina and strength of every athlete participating.”
