X Man SA

If you, like me, have for the past few days just heard “xman” “xman” “xman” then this is the right place to be! The X Man is a 10km trailed run followed by 30 obstacles which are meant to push you beyond your limits. The event is taking place on the weekend of the 22-24 September 2012.


The most gruelling, most exhilarating, tough-as-nails, out-of-the-norm, mass participation, social adventure race on the African continent! The best weekend away in South Africa!

A 10km trail-run in the African bush followed by an epic-fierce 30 strong obstacle course surpassed in harshness only by the desert-like environment in which it is built!

There are quite a few ticket options depending on your preference and the prices range from R350 for just the event entry to R4000 for group entries. For a more detailed comparison of the entries go here

X Man will be hosted at Fort Wolff, 3km outside Touwsrivier, and they also have overnight camping options if you don’t want to make the 160km trip before the race.

If you are on the fence about whether to do it or not, just take the plunge and you won’t regret it! There is still a long way to go for the race and ample time to get your running shoes and gym on!

Be sure to check out their facebook page as well as follow the XMANSA twitter feed!
