GEORGE NEWS - If you are up to the challenge, take part in one of the annual sport events at the George Strawberry Festival presented by Ola, on 21 and 22 September at Redberry Farm.
Flex your muscles at CrossFit's "Fittest in the Garden Route" competition or let your soles hit the ground in a 5km fun run/walk or 9km run at the Trail Run powered by Outeniqua Refrigeration.
"Fittest in the Garden Route" has become a favourite competition amongst CrossFitters in the Garden Route, from Plettenberg Bay to Mossel Bay. The competition, consisting of weightlifting, gymnastics and cardio, tests athletes in all aspects of functional fitness.
There will be categories for ladies' individual, men's individual and four-person teams, happening at 09:00 on Saturday 21 September. Contact CrossFit George to enter or to get more information.
