Grabouw, situated in the Western Cape atop the Sir Lowry’s Pass, is a mountain paradise for the outdoor enthusiast.
For the Xterra athlete, Grabouw offers the opportunity to mountain bike in widely varying conditions. From gravel fire roads to rough jeep track and technically challenging single track, pine plantation to Cape Fynbos. Surface conditions are also varied, from ragged rocky conditions, pine needle covered trail, loose gravel and of course the ubiquitous sand! Grabouw is NOT flat, you will need to have your climbing legs with you and you will need your descending skills fine tuned. It is, after all, the South Africa Xterra Championship forming part of the Xterra World Circuit!
For the Trail Runners, the challenge does not stop. Although you will be able to stretch the running legs initially, it will not be too long before the ‘scramble’ starts. The trail run leg will take the Xterra athlete up slopes and along certain trails that are not accessible to the mountain biker, thus offering spectacular views not normally seen by the casual visitor to Grabouw. After the main climb and the following descent, the trail run will bring the Xterra athlete along the shores of the Eikenhof Dam, back to the finish line and well deserved refreshment.
