Are you up for joining some adventurous or sporty activities to get the blood flowing this winter? You’d better hurry up and get those entries secured or you will be watching from the side-lines! The 2019 Oyster Festival has lots to offer for outdoor lovers of all fitness levels, so don’t get left behind!

For the cyclists the famous Knysna Cycle Tour has announced new and improved routes for their biggest events, so get your gear ready as entries close on 14 June 2019. Visit www.knysnacycle.co.za to book your place.

If you’re up for a bumpier ride, the Mountain Bike Meander has both social and competitive races with limited spots available, enter now at www.electricink.co.za.

A Kurland Forest Triathlon should prove exciting for those who need a little more of a challenge and if you don’t want to miss out be sure to book your entries at www.electricink.co.za soon.

Knysna Forest Marathon entries have unfortunately already closed but athletes should not worry as the Houtkapper Trail still has a few spots available with 15 or 27 km race options to choose from followed by fun activities for all at the Quinta Da Montanha. Enter at www.knysnamarathonclub.com/houtkapper-trail-run.

For the ‘normal’ people who like running but in moderation and have kiddies to include in their daily plans, the IKASI Colour Fun Runs and activities at Loerie Park promise to be great fun for the whole family and tickets are going fast, so get yours now at the Visit Knysna office at 40 Main Road.

Young ones feeling competitive or anyone who would prefer a less colourful race to keep active this winter should sign up for the ASWD 5km Fun Run, Relay Race, Street Mile or Cross Country.

FNB Family Forest Hikes, or Trail Runs for those who think walking is boring, is an exciting opportunity to get yourself, your children, your parents and friends all out of the house this holiday. Book the whole family now on www.electricink.co.za.

If all of the above seems like too much exercise for you maybe consider enjoying some fresh air, beautiful scenery and breath-taking photo opportunities on the Woodcutters and River of Gold Guided Walks with Photographer Andrew Aveley.

Now we know there are also those who don’t mind running as long as they are running after a ball! For these people we have all sorts of sporting tournaments from Rugby to Soccer and even Netball and Basketball. For those who aren’t into chasing the ball but rather hitting it away we have the Golf: Motus Heron Classic and Golf: Europcar Knysna Classic tournaments at Pezula Gold Course. But not to worry if you do not like balls at all because for you we have a special boxing tournament on Saturday the 29th. Visit www.knysnaoysterfestival.co.za to get in contact with any of the sports organisers.

Then, finally, for those who some might think are slightly crazy there is the Knysna Lagoon Mile swim on Friday 28 June. If you’ve never seen humans turn a shade of blue, be sure to attend, as this event is for the bravest of them all. Get your trunks out and hold your breath as we will be cheering for you from the side for this one!

Don’t be the left out this winter! Visit www.KysnaOysterFestival.co.za for details on these events and more now!
