About The Oceanic Xtra Large Challenge 2021

One weekend, two short, intense and different challenges. No frills. We wish to give you an experience that will challenge you and enhance your development as an endurance athlete.

On Friday, we start with the off-road Swim-Run-Swim-Run- Swim challenge. This is a point-to-point challenge which starts and ends at the Oceanic Hotel. It consists of: 500m swim/4.5 km run/1 km swim/ 2 km run/500m swim back to the hotel.  (Minimum age requirement 12 years and above)

You will be done early enough to enjoy the rest of the day at leisure in the local surroundings!

On Saturday, we have another early start with a Bike/run challenge. 42 km hilly bike ride (on the secret road) followed by a 4 km trail run.  (Minimum age requirement 17 years and above)

The Challenge will conclude with breakfast and prize giving.
