Fedhealth XTERRA Kids – Grabouw

Taking place at the Grabouw Country Club in the Western Cape, Fedhealth XTERRA Kids serves as a fun introduction into off-road triathlons for eager, young XTERRA Warriors. Fedhealth XTERRA Kids allows parents to bring the kids along to experience the thrill of competing in a world class, professionally organised event – and potentially finding the next XTERRA champion. Included in the experience, all XTERRA Kids Warriors will receive a drawstring goody bag filled with exciting surprises and a finisher’s medal.

The format includes a swim, mountain bike and trail run.

EVENT WATER USAGE

Initiatives taken by Fedhealth XTERRA to ensure we do not make use of Municipal drinking water from the city grid:
With the severe drought in the Western Cape and strict water restrictions in place we as an event endeavours to stick to the quantity of water allowed per individual per day.
At the Fedhealth XTERRA we aim to be water wise and limit the use and wastage of water at the event and have put the following in place.
Each entrant will have to bring their own water bottles filled with water. No free running water will be available at the venue to fill up water bottles. A hydration pack is recommended for the mountain bike ride and trail run.
Ensure you have water available for yourself post the event. 500ml water will be on sale at the bar.
All refreshment points on route will be stocked with coke and water sourced from an alternative source and not taken from the municipal drinking water.
No showers will be available.
No bike wash will be available.
Being water wise includes:
The Fedhealth XTERRA Grabouw is hosted outside of the city on privately owned land.
The limited water at the venue is sourced locally and off the municipal grid
All our suppliers/ sub-contractors will be briefed about our initiatives and will have to comply with our water policy and strictly adhere to not using municipal drinking water.
Fedhealth XTERRA makes use of Sale’s Hire as our service provider for portable toilets. All water used in the toilets is grey water and will be disposed of in a responsible manner by the service provider.
Waterless hand sanitisers will be used in the toilets instead of basins to wash hands.
We will educate both participants and spectators regarding our initiatives towards saving water.
