Stoltz a four time XTERRA World Champion, three time ITU Cross Triathlon World Champion, two time Olympian, and South African Triathlon legend announced the event on his social media saying:
Super excited to announce @crosstrichallenge 2020 in Grabouw!
The courses will be designed and built by myself, something I have dreamed about for years.
Apart from the full flavour, full distance off road triathlon, there will be a lite event for newbies. We are especially passionate about kids and having a good family vibe, so we will put a strong focus on hosting quality kids events and entertainment.

While Stolz’ event is not a direct response to XTERRA cutting ties with 16 year event organizer, Stillwater Sports, the new Cross Tri Challenge does fill the void left by the demise of XTERRA South Africa.
The event takes place February 22, 2020 in the pristine waters of the Eikenhof Dam and world renown trails of Grabouw Country Club.
The race features a full, sprint, junior, and kids options with the hope of creating a good family vibe with a strong focus on hosting quality kids events and entertainment.
