The Battle is a 3 day Health and Fitness event not only showcasing the talent South Africa has to offer but also offering the whole family a great healthy day out.The Battle 2020 will be more family based than ever with a wide variety of activities for the whole family.

Our main goal still is to create THAT wow FACTOR in both the event presentation and participation.

Everything we do is to enhance the experience and create lasting fitness memories.

We believe by aiming Battle at family fun we can have a positive effect on both the youth and parents attending the event.

Our story

The first Battle was held in 2014 on a tennis court of Heia safari park. Back then the event was called The Battle of the Jukskei , but the name has since changed to just The Battle .This was changed to make it more inclusive for the whole South Africa.

Since that we have out grown our venue at Heia Safari and Silver star Casino with The Battle 2020 moving to Pretoria University sports grounds.

In 2014 we had roughly a 100 spectators and in 2020 we are hoping to receive over 7000 spectators over the 3 days.

The Battle “Showcase Your Fitness” is South Africas most exciting and inclusive Fitness event, allowing participants of all skill levels to showcase their fitness and skills.

Our spectators are just as important to us .We offer all our spectators a great family fun day out with a wide variety of food vendors and sports to view with load of kids activities to get involved in.
