Calling all mountain bikers, trail runners and triathlon lovers: Don’t miss out on the chance to participate in three exhilarating challenges, set along some of the Western Cape’s most scenic routes. Iqela Events’ Cellar 2 Cellar, Six in One Challenge and Slanghoek Triathlon are officially open for entries.

The sixth annual Cellar 2 Cellar Trail Run and Wine Experience takes place on 5 September 2015 at Blaauwklippen Estate in Stellenbosch. Along the way, participants can sample the fine wines of participating estates, perfectly paired with delicious cheeses. Wine Experience participants who swap their traditional running gear for fancy-dress costumes stand the chance to “win their weight in wine”. The overall winners of the more serious men’s and women’s Trail Runs, without the Wine Experience, will also be rewarded with excellent wines from participating estates. Entries range from R150 to R320.

The annual Slanghoek Triathlon takes place on 24 and 25 October 2015 at the Breeland Wine Cellar in the Slanghoek Valley. This exciting two-part race consists of a MTB triathlon on the 24th and a road triathlon on the 25th. The race includes swimming, running and cycling. Individual and team entries range from R320 to R600.

The Six in One Challenge is a multisport event that takes place on 29 November 2015 at Doran Vineyards, Paardeberg. This challenge is a true test of strength and teamwork, consisting of six legs that must be completed in sequence. Athletes who would like to skip the water-related legs can enter in the NoH2O category. Individual or team entries range from R450 to R1 200.
