The fourth annual Discovery Plett Easter Games are just under a month away and looking at the schedule for this year’s events – Plett is going to be the place to be this Easter! The Discovery Plett Easter Games, organised by the Nature Sport Company, combines a variety of outdoor sports into a single, action-packed weekend in Plettenberg Bay from 18-21 April 2014.
The programme of events for the Easter Weekend includes trail running, surf ski races, night mountain biking and a golf challenge as returning events from previous years and some first-ever events for Plett in the CrossFit Games, Tag Rugby Tournament and a sandcastle competition for the kids. The natural beauty of Plettenberg Bay makes this the ideal place to host an array of fun outdoor sporting contests!
The Pennypinchers Adventure Race Team hosts 3 of these events: the night mountain bike relay, doubles surfski challenge and Cairnbrogie trail run and, in another first for the Easter Games, this trifecta of races will lead to a new champion – the Offthehook Treble Champion – the athlete who has the shortest time in the 3 combined events will be crowned.
For those who can’t make it down to Plett for Easter, there are a number of other sporting events throughout the year; and Plett has some excellent mountain biking and trail running areas to explore. Anytime is a good time to visit Plett!
