Incorporating the trail run routes of SA’s premier off-road triathlon, the Fedhealth XTERRA, entrants can choose between an action-packed 12km and/or 6km route.

Alexia Loizou claimed gold in the women’s race at the inaugural 12km XTERRA Trail Run in Nelson Mandela Bay in 2016.  “It’s great that XTERRA is now being hosted in Nelson Mandela Bay,” said Loizou.  “I entered the XTERRA Trail Run as my road back to XTERRA.  The race was lovely.” 

Siyabonga Kahla was the athlete to beat in the men’s 6km XTERRA Trail Run in Nelson Mandela Bay.  “Myuyisi Gcogco and I decided to take part in the XTERRA Trail Run,” said Kahla.  “We run for Free Spirit Adventures.  Myuyisi came first in the 12km race.   The 6km route was well marked.  I really enjoyed the race.”
