  1. The X-Berg X-Treme Challenge

Thursday, 28 April  – Sunday, 1 May

Location: Mountain Splendour Eco Resort – Champagne Valley – Drakensberg

The X-Berg Challenge is a unique concept where the challengers must either fly, run or cycle through pre-set “dots/turn-points” in the mighty Drakensberg. The length of the race is measured according to the straight line connecting the dots or turn points. It is approximately 150km. The first athlete to reach goal at the end of the route will be crowned “King of the Berg”.  But there are also prizes to be won in each class.

  1. Ingeli Sky Marathon and Trail Run

Saturday, 30 April

Location: Green Point Stadium Athletics Stadium, Cape Town

The Ingeli SkyMarathon forms one of the 9 sanctioned South African SkyRunning Series for 2016. It is a challenging mix of forest single track, climbing mountain paths, dirt jeep track and cut grass paths that leads runners to the highest parts of the Ingeli Mountain.

The 21km Mountain is the mini version of the full challenge, but should not be underestimated. It is still a tough, challenging and scenic route in itself.

There are also 10km and 5km forest trail events. These do not venture onto Ingeli Mountain, but still involve a few steep climbs and descents through the forested area.
