KNYSNA EXTREME 0.5
Your introduction to the world of extreme triathlons
The Knysna Extreme 0.5 is a shorter alternative to the Knysna Extreme Triathlon and serves as an introduction to the world of extreme triathlons. With an altitude gain of nearly 1,700m over a total distance of 132.50 km, the Knysna Extreme 0.5 offers an exciting challenge for athletes.
The course starts with a 2.5 km swim in the Knysna Estuary, followed by a 100 km cycle through the Garden Route. The 30 km run takes you into the Knysna forest and to the finish line at Diepwalle Forrest Station.
It is not mandatory for Knysna Extreme 0.5 athletes to have a supporter to follow them throughout the race. However, supporters are more than welcome to be part of the journey. Knysna Extreme 0.5 athletes are allowed to have a supporter follow them on the cycle leg (via vehicle) or second them on the run leg of the race – on foot, mountain bike or vehicle.
