Now in its second year, the Nqoba Challenge is a ‘must’ for the family calendar! 

Hosted by HeronBridge College, a Curro Select school located in Fourways, and powered by Planet Fitness, the Nqoba Challenge is a fun-filled obstacle course for families that takes place on 16 September 2023. 

Whether you are a family with little ones wanting a fun day out, the cool uncle wanting to race your nephews over giant inflatables, or the competitive family who wants to challenge your friends, this event is just for you!

The obstacle course will be run through the HeronBridge College grounds, which are situated along the Jukskei river, and participants can expect a range of exciting under and over challenges. Obstacles range from leopard crawls and tyre jumps, balancing challenges, giant gladiator slides, inflatable walls and more. 


Routes are catered to families of all shapes and sizes with a 5km challenger that puts you through your paces, a 3km route for those who are still building their stamina, and a 1km option for young children who are just finding their feet. 

“We wanted to create an event that celebrates community, spring and all the joys that come with this time of year” says JP Lübbe, Head of the prep school at HeronBridge College. “The word ‘Nqoba’ means to overcome, and what better way to shake off winter and the challenges that we are facing as a nation, than with a fun-filled obstacle course just before Heritage Day!” 


The routes are interactive, fun, and peppered with hydration stations to keep everyone refreshed. An array of entertainment is on offer at the finish, with a host of vendors, jumping castles, music, spot prizes and more. 

Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind family day and kick off summer with the Nqoba Challenge. 

Entry is R30 per person and free for children under the age of 12.
