Entries open for 10th annual Totalsports Challenge

Entries are now open for the magnificent Totalsports Challenge, presented by New Balance and REHIDRAT® SPORT. Taking place on Saturday, 14 January 2012 this much loved event will celebrate its 10th anniversary on the day.

According to Michael Meyer, Director of Stillwater Sport & Entertainment, the event has received tremendous support over the past ten years. “It is with great excitement that we prepare to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Totalsports Challenge in January 2012. Since its inception the Totalsports Challenge has been a highlight on the South African sports calendar attracting top competitors from various sporting disciplines. We look forward to hosting a memorable event. We are extremely proud to welcome REHIDRAT® SPORT as a new co presenting sponsor of the Totalsports Challenge. Participants can now look forward to a well deserved rest in the REHIDRAT® SPORT recovery zone,” says Meyer.

Choose between the action-packed 7-discipline Totalsports Challenge or the less daunting 4-discipline Totalsports Terra Firma Challenge. Athletes up for a challenge can enter individually, while those who prefer team sports can put together a team of two, three or seven for the Totalsports Challenge or a team of two or four for the Totalsports Terra Firma Challenge. Either way it is sure to be a day to remember with past champions coming out to share in the fun.
