Tribal Clash South Africa is powered by:
Tribal Clash South Africa will be the 5th stage in the 2019 global series, after Australia, Portugal, USA and UK. The competition will take place on the iconic Camps Bay Beach, with teams of 6 athletes (3 men + 3 women) racing in various challenges over the course of the weekend.
Tribal Clash is the ultimate test of team fitness for EVERYONE: from beginners to elite athletes. Our events are designed to be true team events, testing work capacity as a team. There are no qualifiers and no categories, your tribe is your tribe and you are all in it together!
Assemble your team and get ready to see what’s outside your comfort zone. This is fitness but not as you know it.

REGISTRATION & CHECK-IN
Click here to register your team for Tribal Clash South Africa 2019. Your team spot at Tribal Clash is confirmed as soon as you have completed payment. From this point on, the spot is non-refundable and non-transferable.
A few months prior to the event, you will be contacted using the email address you registered with to confirm the team name and a few other important details. Once these details have been confirmed, athlete waivers will be sent which must be completed by all registered athletes – your team will be unable to compete unless this has been done.
Teams must check in on the beach the day before the competition begins. Only one team member is required to check in the team – this should be your nominated team captain – please confirm who your team captain is for this purpose. If you are unable to check-in on the Friday evening, it is possible to make alternative arrangements to check in prior to the first event on Saturday morning.
Tribal Clash workouts are always kept secret until the night before the event, meaning that must train for the unknown and be ready for anything.
We will announce Saturday’s workouts on the Friday evening, then announce Sunday’s workouts on the Saturday evening (as per the programme above). These athlete briefings will take place in the Tribal Clash arena on the beach. Our demo team will run through the workouts and movement standards, then there will be a brief question and answer session. Workout details will be posted on our website as well as on Facebook and Instagram. Athletes must make sure that they understand what is required and how the events are scored.
We cannot answer any questions regarding the events until these athlete briefings, including whether everyone has to swim and how far, or how heavy the equipment is.
Spectators are invited to attend free of charge.
Tribal Clash is a fantastic, family-friendly experience for spectators so come along, support your team and enjoy the electric atmosphere!
Don’t forget the tribe that exhibits the greatest team spirit across the whole weekend wins the Tribal Spirit Trophy, as voted by the Tribal Clash judges. This is based on the presence and attitude of a team’s extended tribe as well as the athletes themselves, so bring as many supporters as you can and prepare to make an impact!
