Virgin Active Cape Epic Battle


Whether you’re here to try your luck (and tenacity) at winning an entry into the 2018 Absa Cape Epic or you just want to compete in individual challenges for epic prizes… you’ve got guts.

As a headline sponsor and Official Health Club Partner, Virgin Active is hosting our second Epic Battle. There are 4 challenges running over 8 weeks. Complete them all and you could win one of 2 team entries or a runner-up prize of a luxury Epic Trippers experience. But if you’re not mad enough to ride the toughest mountain bike race in the world, you can ride one or more of the individual challenges and walk away with great prizes.

To all the crazies, get signed up by 2 Oct, 2017. For everyone else, check out the Challenges page and see which you want to do.

If you’re keen to just take part in a few of the challenges, enter the Epic Battle and stand to win great prizes.
