X-Berg Challenge 2020
Mar 24 – Mar 29 all-day
X-Berg Challenge 2020 @ Mokhotlong | Lesotho

The eighth edition of the X-Berg Challenge will take place from 24-29 March 2020 with Extreme (three-day) and Mini (two-day) versions.

Paraglider pilots race mountain bikers and runners around turnpoints in the Drakensberg mountains of South Africa / Lesotho. The route distance depends which way you go, and typically only 10% of competitors make it to the finish of the Extreme Challenge.

2019’s Extreme winner was mountain biker Jon Kirkman who finished in 24 hours and 43 minutes; second in were biker team Justin Armstrong and Peter Joughin, a day later.

Between Heaven and Earth, who organise the event, are offering complete travel packages from Johannesburg International Airport to the 2020 X-Berg Challenge event, along with return transport, accommodation and add-on travel packages including trips to game reserves, Cape Town and Wilderness retreat.
