X-Berg Challenge 2021: runner Jon Kirkman wins

Thursday 25 March, 2021

Jon Kirkman won the Extreme category of the 2021 X-Berg Challenge for the second consecutive time, as a trail runner. He won as a mountain biker in 2019! 

In this multi-day, multi-discipline race in the Drakensberg mountains of South Africa, runners, mountain bikers and paraglider pilots compete against each other. It is not a done-deal which discipline will win, and every year is different, but this year was a trail running year, with runner Jean-Pierre Joubert winning the two-day Mini Race too.
