The CHALLENGE...in short


The X-BERG CHALLENGE is an adventure race between paraglider vs. runner vs. cyclist for Athletes looking for a twist.

 

The challenge is to fly, run and cycle along a pre-set race route across the Drakensberg, South Africa. The length of the route may differ from race to race (I.e. between 2012 and 2017) but will be around 100 -150 km as the crow flies (straight line distance). The aim of the race is to finish as quickly as possible travelling only by paraglider, foot or bicycle (either you are carrying “IT” or “IT” is carrying you). After starting teams are to self-navigate past pre-determined “turn points” en-route. These turn points along with the overall route will be defined by the Race Committee. The Athlete who completes the route and reaches the finish first shall be declared the winner of the race.

Athletes Wanted for Hazardous Journey. Small entry fee, bitter cold at times, long hours of complete darkness, constant wilderness challenges, energetic return doubtful. Honor and recognition in case of success.

Perhaps Sir Ernest Shackleton would have advertised the X-Berg Challenge in similar words back in the early 1900’s. He was a true explorer! Are you?
