Looking To Get Active In The Northern Cape?

Sure, the Northern Cape is the perfect destination if you want to see the flowers, immerse yourself in a variety of cultures & view some of South Africa’s wildlife – But the Northern Cape also happens to be one of the best destinations to visit if you are looking to partake in any sporting events and feel an intense adrenaline rush. 

Something for the bikers!

Home of the Namaqua Quest Mountain Bike tour, The Northern Cape, more specifically Springbok, welcomes both locals as well as spectators and participants from all over the country. Participants can look forward to three days filled with riding amongst the beautiful flowers, alongside the most breathtaking peaks and valleys whilst immersing themselves in the natural beauty of the Northern Cape. This event occurs annually during peak flower season, it’s definitely one for the books! This event takes place from the 2nd of September, 2022 – 4th of September 2022.

Looking to beat your current running record?

A recurring favorite amongst the locals is the Kathu Parkrun. This amazing timed run occurs every Saturday in the beautiful town of Kathu. Come cold or heat, locals gather every Saturday to compete in the run. This is a run that’s sure to get your heart pumping! It’s you, against the clock. You can take in all the wonderful scenic spoils Kathu has to offer whilst completing the 5km race. Next time you’re in Kathu, challenge yourself to the Kathu Parkrun. 

Something else for the avid runners

Do you believe that you could cover 250km over a period of seven days? We sure believe that you can! The South African Kalahari Augrabies Extreme Marathon is an insanely intense race. Filled with extreme weather & geographic conditions, it sure is a tough one – But imagine the level of satisfaction you will feel once you have completed it! It certainly is one of those goals you’d find on a bucket list. Contestants must keep all clothing & food items on them during the race, making it even more difficult than it already is. Bring your family along as spectators, they can stay at the Country Hotels along the route, cheering you on as you go! The event will take place from the 6th of October, 2022 – 16th of October, 2022. Come and make some core memories!
