Landie Greyling says she has new found respect for Xterra Warriors taking on the Totalsports Xterra Grabouw Full presented by Rehidrat Sport on Sunday, after winning the challenging 11km New Balance Trail Run, presented by Isuzu, outside Grabouw on Saturday, 23 February, 2013.

“Your legs already feel like jelly after the mountain bike discipline and then to take on the run directly afterwards, I take my hat off to the Xterra Warriors. I tried taking it easy today, but Ronel Nattrass gave me a go.

“Today’s route was absolutely world class,” says Greyling, having completed the 11km race in a deserving time of 54 minutes, 2 seconds. “Stillwater Sport once again put on a superb event. You cannot ask for a better route in this distance. I’ll definitely be back next year.”

Ronel Nattrass came in second, while Harpur Hayley finished third.

Stefanie Cherry took gold in the women’s 5km Trail Run with a winning time of 35 minutes, 1 second, ahead of Amy Stevens in second, and Nicolette Shelly completing the podium.

The 5km and 11km New Balance Trail Run routes followed the same routes as that of the Totalsports Xterra Lite (Saturday, 23 February 2013) and Totalsports Xterra Full (Sunday, 24 February 2013) respectively.

Trail Runners were given the unique opportunity to experience spectacular routes that are inaccessible to mountain bikers. Initially given the opportunity to stretch their legs, but it wasn’t too long before the ‘scramble’ started.

After the main climb and the following descent, the trail run brought athletes along the shores of the Eikenhof Dam, back to the finish line into the much deserved Rehidrat Sport Recovery Zone.
