The camp is set to take place at Wildekrans Wine Estate on 20th and 21st December 2017. There is no entry fee and registration will take place on the day at the wine estate.
Michael Meyer, managing director of Stillwater Sports said: “We are extremely proud to introduce X-DAY to the XTERRA Community. Unlike XTERRA, X-DAY won’t be a mass participation event, but rather a more intimate gathering of sporting enthusiasts looking to train at their own pace on a safe XTERRA course.
“The event will be self-timed with XTERRA Warriors starting and finishing at their own leisure. We invite all sport enthusiasts to enjoy a day out celebrating the sport of XTERRA at the magnificent Wildekrans Wine Estate.”
Conrad Stoltz said: “My first XTERRA race was in 2001 in Richmond, Virginia and it was the adventure, technical challenge and cool people that attracted me to the sport. I enjoyed road triathlon and I was relatively good at it, but it was only after I’d discovered XTERRA (ten years after turning pro) that I’d really found my calling. I’d recommend this sport to newcomers because it’s outside in nature, it’s exciting, challenging, well rounded, the people are cool and there are many great places that you can visit to take part in an XTERRA.
“I think X-DAY is a fantastic idea, it’s basically a training camp that is open to everyone. It’s a great way to learn the tricks of the trade from an old hand. I’m really honoured to be an XTERRA ambassador. I’d like to inspire people of all abilities to ‘live more’. Loving sport and the outdoors is a very important part of my life, which I’d like to share with my children and hopefully the people I reach as an ambassador.”
