Sales Hire Events teams up with XTERRA Grabouw

Stillwater Sports is excited to welcome Sales Hire Events as an official partner to the 2019 XTERRA Grabouw.

“We are excited to welcome Sales Hire Events as a partner to the 2019 XTERRA Grabouw,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director Stillwater Sports.  “With on route experience always top of mind, the logistics team and/or partners are often the unsung heroes of an event.  Sales Hire Events will provide XTERRA Grabouw with fencing that is required both for event flow and safety.  With a strong focus on hygiene, their portable ablution facilities are well kept and clean.  With Sales Hire Events in our corner we look forward to hosting a memorable event that ticks all the boxes both on route and in the Festival Village.”

“Sales Hire Events provides mobile toilets, fencing and showers to all the leading blue chip events in the Western Cape,” says Francois de la Bat, Partner Sales Hire Events.  “We’ve been a longstanding client of Stillwater Sports and we are extremely proud to partner with XTERRA Grabouw in 2019.  Together we would like to continue growing the sport of XTERRA in South Africa.  We would like all entrants to take the experience of a well-organized event home with them.”

SPECTACULAR ROUTES:  The 2019 XTERRA Grabouw will treat off-road adventure seekers to an exciting route experience.  “XTERRA Full entrants can expect a brand new MTB and trail run experience,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director Stillwater Sports.  “The MTB route will follow the Northern trails (new to XTERRA) for the first 12km before heading back towards single track heaven.  An easier trail run route will take entrants around the dam and will also feature spectacular single track.  The iconic beach run to the finish will still close off the race.”

“Although only half the distance of the Full Race, the XTERRA Lite routes should not be underestimated,” advises Meyer.  “The mountain bike route will include its fair share of hills and single track.  The trail run route will pose its own challenges, but the effort will be rewarded with spectacular views and a lasting feeling of accomplishment.”

EXCITING NEWSThe XTERRA Grabouw (Full Race) will serve as a selection race for the 2019 ITU Cross Tri World Championships in Pontevedra, Spain.  In order to be considered for the SA team athletes must be fully licensed with TSA before race day.   For further information please visit:
