Triathlon in its purest form
If you are passionate about challenging yourself, pushing your limits, experiencing unique and varied scenery and being part of an incredible group of athletes and being supported by family and friends on your journey, then join us on 18 November 2023 for an unforgettable triathlon!
The Knysna Extreme is an extreme triathlon and Africa's Toughest triathlon! Extreme Triathlons are by definition held over more extreme courses and potentially have more extreme conditions. With longer and far more challenging courses than a typical long distance. The Knysna Extreme is no different!
It is a challenging Point-To-Point, self-supported race that takes place along South Africa’s scenic Garden Route. The course starts with a 5 km swim in the Knysna Estuary, followed by a 174 km cycle through coastal, mountain and semi-desert scenery. That is then finished by a 50 km run through plantations and the Knysna forest. It is a grueling, yet scenic route that takes triathletes back to the purest form of the sport. The route will test your fitness levels, mental strength and determination.
Each athlete is required to have a supporter to follow them throughout the race, providing all mechanical, nutritional and mental support. With an altitude gain of nearly 3,800m over a total distance of 229 km, the Knysna Extreme is an extreme triathlon that offers an exciting personal challenge for athletes.
