Western Cape – The much anticipated Fedhealth XTERRA Kids Race kicked off an action packed weekend of multi-sport racing at the picturesque Grabouw Country Club on Friday, 19 February 2016.
“The Fedhealth XTERRA Grabouw is a highlight on the XTERRA racing circuit, with the XTERRA Kids race at the forefront of the action,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports. “Today we were once again in awe of our junior XTERRA Warriors who clearly did not allow the wet weather conditions to get them under. The energy felt from start to finish was electric. We are extremely thankful to all the parents that made it possible for their children to enter and look forward to welcoming back all athletes in 2017.”
“One of the Fedhealth family’s goals is to inspire a healthy, active lifestyle from an early age, and the XTERRA Kids events offer the perfect opportunity to do just that,” says Jeremy Yatt, Principal Officer of Fedhealth. “An added bonus is that Mom, Dad and the whole family can make a fun weekend of it and participate together, as there’s something for everyone. We look forward to seeing more and more kids at these events in future.”
Junior multi-sport athletes could choose between three age group categories when entering the Fedhealth XTERRA Kids Race:
- Age Group 6-8yrs: Swim: 50m; MTB: 1.5km; Trail Run: 500m
- Age Group 9-11: Swim: 100m; MTB: 5km; Trail Run: 2km

After a challenging day out on route, XTERRA Warriors can look forward to recovering in the NUUN Recovery Zone. “We’ll be there to put back what the race takes out with cold coolers of our proprietary blend of electrolytes in natural, delicious flavours – all without any sugars. Get excited for refreshing flavours like Strawberry Lemonade, Tri-Berry, Fruit Punch, Lemon and Lime and Citrus Fruit,” says Etienne du Plessis, CEO of NUUN.
Another special feature to look forward to in the NUUN Recovery Zone will be the serving of the proudly South African ButtaNutt series of authentic tree nut spreads. “Our spreads are filled with healthy fats and proteins for sustained energy. ButtaNutt will also be giving away an entire year’s supply to one lucky XTERRA finisher at each of the three events,” says Antoine van Heerden, Managing Director of ButtaNutt.
