Entries are open for the exciting THIRSTI AFRICANX TRAILRUN 2-Day XPLORE that will take place at the Van Gaalen Kaasmakerij, Hartbeespoort (North West Province) in August 2021 and the THIRSTI AFRICANX TRAILRUN 1-Day XPERIENCE that will take place at the Paul Cluver Wine Estate, Grabouw (Western Cape) in September 2021.
In May this year event organisers, Stillwater Sports, shared the very exciting news that SA’s premier 3-Day Stage Trail Run would expand into a National Series of events with three events taking place in 2021 and five events taking place in 2022.
“The first event of 2021, our flagship 3-Day THIRSTI AFRICANX TRAILRUN took place in March,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports and Founder of the event. “The final two events for 2021 are the THIRSTI AFRICANX TRAILRUN 2-Day XPLORE at Van Gaalen Kaasmakerij (North West Province) on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 August, followed by the THIRSTI AFRICANX TRAILRUN 1-Day XPERIENCE that will take place at the Paul Cluver Wine Estate (Western Cape) on Saturday 18 September.”
“Living up to the THIRSTI AFRICANX TRAILRUN reputation, the 2-Day XPLORE is the perfect prelude to what to expect from the flagship 3-Day event,” continues Meyer. “Taking the format of an ‘individual entry’ event (not teams of two), runners can look forward to exploring the most spectacular terrain that the North West Province has to offer. Each stage will feature a different route that is guaranteed to keep things exciting while leaving runners in awe.”
“The 1-Day XPERIENCE is the perfect AFRICANX teaser,” confirms Meyer. “Situated less than an hour’s drive from the Cape Town International Airport, not only is Paul Cluver Wines easily accessible and perfect for Capetonians that would like to enjoy a day out on the trails, it’s also convenient for trail runners that will be travelling from outside of Cape Town. Taking the format of an ‘individual entry’ event (not teams of two), runners will be treated to some of the Western Cape’s most iconic trails. Whether entering the 2-Day XPLORE or 1-Day XPERIENCE, both events boast magnificent trails that are combined with spectacular views, a relaxed atmosphere and great vibe! We invite all trail running enthusiasts to join in on the fun and Let Nature Give You A Run For Your Money.”

Who is THIRSTI?
THIRSTI is more than just Natural Spring Water; THIRSTI is a way of life. THIRSTI attracts a young, vibrant market with a thirst for life and authentic experiences.
THIRSTI started production at the end of 2015 with their iconic Still and Sparkling ranges. 2019 saw the release of the ultimate sports drink, ISOFIT+, and a bold THIRSTI Flavours range was added in 2020.
With its unique taste, attractive design, and a pH level of 8, THIRSTI has made massive strides in its relatively short time in the market with listings in all major retailers throughout South Africa.
THIRSTI has a strong focus on event sponsorships across multiple sporting codes and, in 2019, they became the hydration partner to both the Comrades Marathon as well as The Sharks rugby team. Adding to this, was the 2021 announcement of the ASBA Cape Epic official water partnership.
