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.

Super Paragliding Testival 2020
Jun 11 – Jun 14 all-day

The dates to note for this year’s Super Paragliding Testival are 11 – 14 June 2020.

Pilots are invited to put the dates in the diary then come along and test wings and harnesses (solo only – no tandem flights allowed at the event).

The ski lift that goes to launch is within easy walk of the landing field where the manufacturers’ stands will be set up. It’s also home to the famous Fliegerbar that will be serving cold beer and weisswurst (white sausage). Choose what you want to demo, head up the lift then fly from the north-facing mountain slope, known for its gentle thermals.
