Location

The Event is hosted at the ever-popular Oranjerus Holiday Resort just outside Upington, ideally located next to the Orange River. Many entrants come here for the whole weekend to enjoy the large campsites with green lawns and lovely shady trees as well as a variety of accommodation options.
The Extreme begins and ends in Oranjerus, however, the cycling and jogging sections are just outside between green vineyards, on the riverbank, along the water canal, in the field and between rock formations.
