The Cradle Festival

The Cradle Festival

The Cradle Festival

The Leverage Corporation has teamed up with Maropeng, Gauteng Government (Management Authority), and a number of local wine estates to bring you the much anticipated Cradle Festival Twenty Thirteen. Following on last year’s success it will once again be taking place at the amphitheatre in Maropeng, in the heart of The Cradle of Humankind, on the 20th and 21st of April.
And this year it promises to be bigger and better than ever!

This year’s Festival is jam-packed with exciting performances which will be announced shortly. It also coincides with the Cradle Festival Wine Weekend which includes cheese and wine tastings, as well as loads of fun activities and competitions for the whole family to enjoy. The well-equipped kids area and daily kids programme offers parents peace-of-mind and a day-off to spoil themselves and relax while being able to enjoy the live entertainment and delectable cheeses and wines on offer. There is also a Craft Expo allowing exhibitors from the Cradle and surrounding areas to showcase their business and service offerings.

Cradle Mountain Trophy – Magaliesburg mountain biking

Cradle Mountain Trophy

Cradle Mountain Trophy

This two-day mountain biking event promises to be an exhilarating experience and will take place over the weekend of 20th and 21st of April 2013. Based at Maropeng, in the heart of The Cradle of Humankind, the event is one of a kind.

It also forms part of the 2013 Cradle Festival and Wine Weekend.

The Cradle Mountain Trophy promises a fantastic offering of single track, plus some challenging off-road, and of course some good technical aspects. But do remember that we are calling this the “Mountain Trophy” for good reason. It is not all flat. We will be making good use of tracks and trails which have previously been used for private events. On these farms you will be riding amongst some amazing wildlife such as Zebra, Wildebeest and even Rhino.

It’s tough, it’s technical, but if you’re doing either Joburg2C or Sani2C, this is the ideal event to get those legs into shape. In fact, it’s a must and chances are, it’s your last chance.

Magaliesberg Adventure Sports – Impi Challenge at Hartbeespoort Dam

Impi Challenge

Impi Challenge



Two-time New Balance IMPI Challenge Cape Town winner, Charl Souma (Claremont) is hoping to continue his winning streak this time in the North West Province when he takes on the New Balance IMPI Challenge at Van Gaalens Cheese Farm in Hartbeespoort on Saturday, 06 April 2013.

According to Souma, his desire for adventure is what led him to the New Balance IMPI Challenge. “I was looking for an adventure that would take me out of my comfort zone, but would still be safe and enjoyable. I enjoy the challenge that the event poses to me as an individual, and I love the atmosphere that is created by all participants. The best way to describe the IMPI Challenge to newcomers is to compare it to when we were children and how much fun we had playing in the park, running, jumping, rolling and crawling. The IMPI Challenge is like that, except way more fun and much more difficult. I am not the fastest or strongest athlete, but I possess a good balance between running ability and physical strength, this is exactly what the IMPI Challenge demands. I have won the IMPI Elite race in Cape Town for the past two consecutive years. The title of IMPI Elite Champion is a prestigious title to hold. Seeing as I have already defended my title in Cape Town, I would like to be able to boast that I have also challenged for it in Gauteng. I also can’t wait for New Balance IMPI Challenge KZN in May. The IMPI Challenge is a terrific day out that combines fun and exercise. Participating in this event definitely awakens your inner child,” laughs Souma.

Venues for the New Balance IMPI Challenge are specifically chosen for their exclusivity and ability to accommodate fun obstacles that will challenge participants both physically and mentally in the ultimate adventure challenge. Set over 12 gruelling kilometres with 18 extreme obstacles for the IMPI Challenger Race and 18km with 25 extreme obstacles for the IMPI Elite Race, the IMPI Challenge combines trail running with a military style obstacle course.
