The BIG5 Challenge is the Ultimate Multisport Challenge which takes place in Knysna from 29 June to 7 July 2018. A race aimed at athletes who push the limits and challenge the status quo, the BIG5 Challenge truly is a league of its own.
Launched 9 years ago, the BIG5 Challenge takes place from the 29th June – 7th July 2018 with the annual Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival as its backdrop.
Competitors participate in 5 events over the 10 days of the festival.
Ranked by their cumulative time, the athlete who completes all five events in the least amount of time will be the 1 race winner.
The BIG5 Challenge has become a bucket list item on the international endurance and adventure race calendar due to the unbelievable natural beauty experienced during all of the 5 races on offer.
