The Caveman Challenge brought to you by Skynamo
Sat 1 May 2021, 08:00 @ Grabouw, Western Cape




1 May 2021

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and resultant limitation on public gatherings, this year’s Caveman Challenge is postponed to 1 May 2021. This is due to the fact the country’s lockdown regulations still do not permit us to host an event of our size. Since no new information is available on when the lockdown level will be reviewed, we have decided to push the date forward until we have more certainty on regulations.

Our main goal is to have a successful and enjoyable event given the challenging circumstances, and we believe it is still possible this year! With the extra time, you can be sure that the team at Caveman Challenge will be conspiring for an even more incredible & exciting event for you! Another silver lining? You have one extra month to train, so we expect some serious game faces by the end of March! 

Athletes who have entered the event thus far, as well as all of those on our mailing list, will receive a formal, detailed email this week. Thank you for your ongoing support, patience and understanding! 


Should the event not be allowed to go ahead on 1 May due to Covid-19 restrictions, we will move it out to a date towards the end of the year.

Should we cancel the event due to Covid-19 restrictions, you will have the option of an 80% refund or transfer of your entry to the 2022 event.


Experience the pristine waters of the Eikenhof dam and the world renowned trails of the Grabouw Country Club for an adventure like never before.
