RACE REPORT – Plett Adventure Racing Team 

Plett Adventure Racing Team Race Report 18 September 2021
Published: October 15th, 2021


Here we go again!!! Plett Adventure team was lucky again to have been able to put on their racing shoes and head to Cape St Francis for the 120km Kinetic Adventure Race.

Although this time the team was a bit smaller consisting of Petrus and Bubbles, they nevertheless went out full steam ahead.

The races started with a 1 1/2 hr bus drive from Cape St Francis Resort to Kareedouw.

A beautiful hike over the mountain saw us hope onto our bikes to cycle to the dam. Where a paddle with two runs in between waited for us.

This is where nature showed us, we are not as hardcore as we thought we were. A headwind of note was the norm for the rest of the race making the paddle brutal and the last cycle endless, but we got to the finish line.

Each race brings something different into one’s life and racing experience; this one taught us don’t give up if the going gets tough. If need be have a bit of a wobble but get back into the boat to finish the business.

Plett Adventure finished in 1st place for the doubles category and 6th overall.

Well done to everybody – it was not an easy one.
Thank you Heidi and Stephan for flying the Adventure flag high.
Big thank you to Plett Tourism. #chasethefeeling
