The X-Berg Challenge is back in March 2021. Lesotho’s multi-day, multi-sport challenge comes in two sizes: a four-day Extreme race, and a two-day Mini race.
It takes place in the beautiful Drakensberg mountains, and pits paragliders, trail runners and mountain bikers against each other. It’s very flexible: you choose one discipline or mix and match; do it alone or in a team. Organisers say:
“Yes it sounds crazy and perhaps impossible for a trail runner to beat a mountain biker or a paraglider but this is what makes the race unique! Over the years athletes have proven that you can win it doing any of the disciplines – the trick is to plan the fastest route between turnpoints and remember that part of the adventure is that anything can happen when you are racing in the mountains.”
This year’s dates are:
- Extreme race: 17-21 March 2021
- Mini Race: 19-22 March 2021
