KNYSNA EXTREME TRIATHLON
No Sugar Coating | No Hand Holding | No Fanfare
Triathlon in its purest form
The Knysna Extreme Triathlon is Africa's Toughest Triathlon and a triathlon experience like no other.
The Knysna Extreme 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. This is then followed 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.
