Welcome to the Discovery Surfers Challenge 2013 website.
Last year saw the start of the Junior Surfers fun run. This is an event which is catered for the youngsters U/14. It will take place the same day of the main race at 14h30, Saturday, 16th February 2013.
The route will take them from Blue Lagoon Hotel (Beacon Bay side) to Bonza Bay, turn at Bonza Bay and return to Nahoon Beach.
So for those parents not partaking in the main event, it’s time to accompany your kids for a 5km dash up and down the beach.
The event is finished for 2013. Click Here to view results.

TV Schedule for 2012 Discovery Surfers Challenge.
The Discovery Surfers Challenge has won an award for Race of the Year 2011 from The Goons.
The Goons is a club of mostly former road runners and the members thereof have more combined years of experience in the sport than any other club or association in South Africa.
The Goons meet a couple of times a month, once for a meeting and once for lunch and they raise money to assist those in need whenever they can. They also assist at numerous races with a state of the art water point and breakfast.
This year the Goons also assisted Surfers with the inaugural Junior Surfers.
The Goons Awards is an annual event and the top athletes of Border/Kei are duly recognised for their achievements. This is highly pertinent given that Border Athletics have long since stopped doing so.
Race organisation is dear to the hearts of all Goons given that it is where most of them excelled. Thus races are judged throughout the year and a winner chosen. This is the first time that an event not in the mold of an organised road race has won the award.
Neville Wilkins was on hand to receive the trophy in front of a number of his committee members.
