After much deliberation the organisers of the DUESOUTH XTERRA presented by REHIDRAT® SPORT are pleased to announce that the much anticipated South African Championships will in future be celebrated over a two day period (Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 February 2012).

According to Michael Meyer, Director of Stillwater Sport & Entertainment, the 2012 DUESOUTH XTERRA SA Champs is going to be bigger than ever.  “We are very excited by the new initiative.  By holding the XTERRA Grabouw Lite on the Saturday and the XTERRA Grabouw Full on the Sunday, we are not only able to accept more entrants per event, but each event will get the recognition and support that it deserves.  In addition, trail running enthusiasts can look forward to the introduction of the New Balance Trail Run on the Saturday.  This event will see runners testing their skill on the XTERRA Full trail run route, presenting XTERRA competitors with the perfect opportunity to test the route before the big race on the Sunday,” says Meyer.

ENTRIES ARE NOW OPEN for the DUESOUTHXTERRA Buffelspoort Dam (Saturday, 28 January 2012) and DUESOUTHXTERRA Grabouw (Saturday, 25 and Sunday, 26 February 2012).
