Stellenbosch (Cape Town) – The action packed IMPI Challenge will head to Cape Town one last time in 2015. Taking place at the picturesque Lievland and Warwick Wine Estates, Stellenbosch the weekend of 17 and 18 October 2015, the IMPI Challenge has two categories that cater for under-18s.

According to Pieter Du Plessis, IMPI Challenge Race Director, IMPI has two events for the younger generation that are the perfect introduction to obstacle course racing. “Both the IMPI Mini and IMPI Dash are safe and fun.   The routes are 1.2km and +-5-6km in length, while the obstacles are easy, but exciting. IMPI Mini entrants have so much fun that they almost always run the course more than once. ”

The IMPI Mini is for ages 6 – 10 and includes unlimited circuits of the 1.2km course which has supervised obstacles. The IMPI Dash is for entrants that are 11 years and older and features a 5 – 6km course that is perfect for families wanting to participate together. The IMPI Elite Race and IMPI Challenge cater for entrants older than 18, while IMPI Corporate is ideal for companies looking for a fun team building exercise.
