The Grabouw Country club was buzzing with excitement on Friday, 20 February 2015 when just under 300 junior XTERRA Warriors toed the line to follow in the footsteps of their sporting heroes by taking part in the much anticipated Totalsports XTERRA KIDS presented by REHIDRAT® SPORT.

According to Nicola Collins, Event Manager, the excitement grows each year at the XTERRA Kids event.  “We were blown away by today’s turn out.  It really is special watching these junior warriors in action, not to mention seeing the phenomenal support that they receive from their parents. This is a key factor in any athlete’s sporting future.  The XTERRA Kids event is the ideal opportunity to introduce the younger generation to the sport of XTERRA.  One day we’ll be able to welcome these XTERRA Kids to the XTERRA Lite event and then eventually the XTERRA Full race, but for now we are happy that they were able to experience the XTERRA Vibe”.

With three age categories to choose from, 6 – 8 years (50m Swim, 1,5km Cycle, 1km Run), 9 – 11 years (100m Swim, 5km Cycle, 2km Run) and 12 – 14 years (200m Swim, 10km Cycle, 3km Run), the Totalsports XTERRA Kids Race is a source of much entertainment for both competitors and spectators alike!
