To further enhance the Fedhealth XTERRA Grabouw’s status of being the largest XTERRA in the World, Event Organisers have made an exciting announcement that this flagship event will be the standalone event in South Africa in 2018. Entries for 2018 will open on Tuesday, 24 October 2017.

“The Fedhealth XTERRA Grabouw has enjoyed the title of ‘largest XTERRA in the World’ for more than three years running.  This is no small feat with the sport of XTERRA being enjoyed in more than 50 countries worldwide,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports.  “To maintain this status we’ve decided to focus our full attention on the South African Championship (Grabouw) and have therefore decided to not host an XTERRA in Buffelspoort (North West Province) and Nelson Mandela Bay (Eastern Cape) in 2018.”

“Our plan for 2018 is to host the largest and most exciting Fedhealth XTERRA Grabouw yet,” continues Meyer.  “Our route building team has been working on a few exciting elements that are guaranteed to be a highlight for entrants and spectators alike. Entrants can look forward to experiencing a world class course that is challenging, yet enjoyable and scenic.  All entrants will also stand the chance to quality for the XTERRA World Championship that will take place later in 2018.  Although XTERRA Grabouw is known to attract an impressive elite field, the event places a strong focus on family enjoyment.  Outdoor enthusiasts of all ages are in for a treat.   Together with Fedhealth’s unwavering support we look forward to hosting a memorable experience like no other in 2018.”

Jeremy Yatt, Fedhealth Principal Officer: “We are extremely excited about the 2018 Fedhealth XTERRA Grabouw. Not only is it the biggest XTERRA event in the world that gives serious triathletes a chance to strut their stuff, but it’s also become a family fitness event that’s right up our ally. So much so that we are focusing all our efforts on the Fedhealth XTERRA Grabouw next year to bring triathletes and families alike a bigger, better event than ever before. With events for Mom, Dad and the kids, we invite everyone to bring the family and embrace a fitter lifestyle with us!”
