Fedhealth XTERRA Kids set to take Grabouw by storm

 

The 2018 XTERRA Season will open with a bang on Friday, 23 February 2018 when excited junior XTERRA Warriors gather at the water’s edge of the picturesque Eikenhof Dam ready to partake in the action-packed Fedhealth XTERRA Kids Race in Grabouw.

The ideal introduction to the sport of XTERRA, the Fedhealth XTERRA Kids Race is hosted at a beautiful venue that encourages family support.

Jadon Hunter (6-8 years) really enjoyed the XTERRA Kids Race in 2017.  “I enjoyed the bike leg the most,” says Hunter.  “I like riding my bike.  I entered the XTERRA because it’s fun.”

According to Angeliq Coetzer (9-11 years) the 2017 XTERRA Kids Race was awesome.  “I enjoyed all three disciplines:  the swim, the mountain bike and the trail run.  I entered because taking part would be an achievement for me and I got a medal.”

Christiaan Franken (12-15 years) made his XTERRA debut in 2017.  “I really enjoyed today.  The mountain bike discipline was my favourite.  I’ll definitely be back in 2018.”
