Nelson Mandela Bay (Port Elizabeth) – South Africa’s premier off-road triathlon, the Fedhealth XTERRA made its Nelson Mandela Bay debut at the exquisite Kings Beach on Friday, 29 January 2016.
Kicking off a magnificent weekend of multi-sport racing with the Fedhealth XTERRA Kids race, families and friends were treated to an action-packed introduction to the sport of XTERRA.
“We are really proud to be able to introduce XTERRA to the residents of Port Elizabeth and its surrounds,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports. “XTERRA is about families spending time together, having fun outdoors. The Fedhealth XTERRA Kids race is really special as our junior XTERRA Warriors are the future of the sport. We are truly thankful for the support received both from the children and their parents and look forward to growing the Fedhealth XTERRA Kids race in Nelson Mandela Bay.”
Says Jeremy Yatt, Principal Officer of Fedhealth: “What made XTERRA really appeal to us, is the fact that it allows the whole family to be involved, whether in a team, in the kids events, or in the Lite and Full. Family values lie close to our hearts as a Scheme.”
