Susan Kruger was the XTERRA Warrior to beat at the 2018 Fedhealth XTERRA Lite at the Elgin-Grabouw Country Club on Sunday, 25 February 2018.


Obliterating the women’s race, Kruger travelled all the way from Pretoria to take on the Fedhealth XTERRA Lite in Grabouw.  “I was hoping to do well, but I really didn’t expect to win,” says Kruger.  “I was second out of the water and managed to catch the leader early on the mountain bike leg.  From there I led till the end.  I enjoy XTERRA because it is tough, but fun.  It keeps your mind going.”

Kruger completed the 2018 Fedhealth XTERRA Lite in a deserving time of 01 hour 19 minutes 32 seconds.  Xanri Haak came in second, while Daneil Feldmann finished third.

“Fedhealth XTERRA Grabouw is the biggest XTERRA in the world, and this year has once again thrilled both local and overseas participants.  The Fedhealth XTERRA Grabouw Lite gives beginner off-road triathletes the chance to prove themselves in the dam, on the tough climbs of the mountain bike course, and on the tough trails.  As there is also an event for kids and more serious XTERRA Warriors, the whole family can share in the fun and fitness over the weekend,” says Jeremy Yatt, Principal Officer of Fedhealth.

A perfect introduction to the sport of XTERRA, the 2018 Fedhealth XTERRA Grabouw Lite saw off- road triathletes having to complete:  a 400m swim in the picturesque Eikenhof Dam, a 14km mountain bike route and a 6.5km trail run.
