“Green-brained” triathletes believe that off road events are the way to go, because you can smell the earth, you don’t inhale exhaust fumes, and your legs do not get jarred by an unforgiving asphalt run. “Grey-brained” triathletes do and die for super fast roads, maximum watts and sustained red-line runs. Read on, we have got great news for both!

On the weekend of 22/23 November The Extreme Company caters for both with the Robertson XTri event. Saturday belongs to off-road triathletes and Sunday to road triathletes. The off-road day comprises 2 events: a long event: 1,5 swim, 27 Km mountain bike and 12 Km run, and a short event: 750 metre swim, 15 Km mountain bike and 6 Km run.
On Sunday, the road event features a sprint and olympic distance race. That comprises the standard distances of 750 metre swim/20 Km bike/5 Km run and 1,5 Km swim/40 Km bike/10 Km run. The Robertson XTri presents the perfect opportunity for gauging your base fitness as the tri season really starts to kick in. For those with a Chuck Norris approach to life, it is advisable to do both days, nothing less.
All of this happens in the Robertson Valley, known for good wines, good food and beautiful, scenic natural surroundings. The best way to about it is to make a weekend of it and book in at one of many excellent B&B’s or other acommodation offerings in the Robertson Valley. Pack the car, get the bike rack on the towbar and get away from it all!
