SA Grabouw Xterra Prize Money increases

The organisers of South Africa’s most exciting off-road triathlon, the Totalsports XTERRA presented by REHIDRAT® SPORT are proud to announce that the prize purse for the South African Championships in Grabouw on Sunday, 23 February 2014 has increased by R100 000, more than doubling the 2013 figure.

“The combined prize purse for the 2014 Totalsports XTERRA Grabouw Full presented by REHIDRAT® SPORT is now R162 500,” said a very excited Nicola Collins, Event Manager. “In addition to this exciting news, we are also happy to announce that prize money will be awarded to the top twenty finishers in both the men’s and women’s individual races. The Totalsports XTERRA SA Championships in Grabouw has grown to be the largest XTERRA in the world, with 3000 warriors expected to partake over the weekend. As part of our vision of growing the sport in South Africa, we would like the Totalsports XTERRA Grabouw to be a favourite race for pro XTERRA athletes in the global tour. We strongly believe that with a healthy prize purse the event will grow even more in both numbers and in stature”.

“XTERRA South Africa is extremely proud to have some of the world’s best athletes as part of our XTERRA family,” continues Collins. “Increasing the prize purse is also our way of saying thank you to all warriors for their support, while encouraging more XTERRA warriors to reach the top. We believe that the increased prize purse will also attract a larger field of international XTERRA warriors, which in turn just might encourage the weekend warrior to come along and be a part of the fantastic XTERRA vibe. Having a highly competitive field is also great news for spectators and we hope that more people will come out with their families to be a part of the event. The team has put a lot of effort into raising the bar even higher than before. With new sponsors such as Fedhealth and Specialized coming on board, XTERRA warriors can look forward to an unbelievable race day experience with entertainment, chill areas, spectator areas, vendors, exhibitors and more”.

Taking the form of the South African Championship, the TOTALSPORTS XTERRA Grabouw presented by REHIDRAT® SPORT forms part of the XTERRA World Tour. Athletes competing at this event stand the chance to qualify for the world championship final in Hawaii later in the year.


Date: Sunday, 23 February 2014
Venue: Grabouw Country Club
Format: 1.5km swim, 27km mountain bike and 11km trail run
Start: 08h30

The build up to the Totalsports XTERRA South African Championships will start at 15:30 on Friday, 21 February 2014 with the Totalsports XTERRA KIDS presented by REHIDRAT® SPORT, followed by the Totalsports XTERRA Lite presented by REHIDRAT® SPORT on Saturday, 22 February 2014 at 09:00.

XTERRA Warriors can look forward to stocking up on energy at the much loved Bokomo Breakfast Zone, while the REHIDRAT® Zone will be a welcomed oasis for Warriors after a tough day of racing.
