Just under 250 junior XTERRA Warriors gathered at the Grabouw Country Club on Friday, 21 February 2014 to be part of the much anticipated Totalsports XTERRA KIDS presented by REHIDRAT® SPORT.
According to Nicola Collins, Event Manager, the turn out on the day was phenomenal. “We are very excited to have welcomed so many junior athletes to the sport of XTERRA today. With SPUR coming on board as the
official sponsor of our fun XTERRA KIDS events there was definitely an added energy. Our International XTERRA Warriors were out showing support and could not believe the number of children taking part in XTERRA in South Africa. We are really happy that we were able to give them the opportunity to experience the XTERRA Vibe,” says Collins.
There were three categories in which Totalsports XTERRA KIDS could compete: 6-8 years (50m Swim, 1,5km Cycle, 500m Run), 9-11years (100m Swim, 5km Cycle, 2km Run) and 12-14years (200m Swim, 10km Cycle, 3km Run).
