The perfect season finale, the IMPI Challenge #3 will boast a new start and finish venue at The Purple Windmill in Stellenbosch on Saturday 23 November 2019.

“We are excited to welcome The Purple Windmill to the IMPI Challenge,” says Pieter du Plessis, IMPI Challenge Race Director.  “This will be the first time that the IMPI Challenge accesses the farm.  Obstacles to look out for on the farm will include the Cargo Towers, the Lily Pads and a nice single-track section to mention just a few.  The entire IMPI Mini Course (for the younger IMPI Warriors) will also be on the farm.  We look forward to closing off the season at the IMPI Challenge #3.  Expect an action-packed day filled with excitement.”

“We have been wanting to get involved with the IMPI Challenge for quite some time,” says Marisa Havinga, Owner The Purple Windmill.  “The IMPI Challenge is awesome and it always looks like people are having fun.  We bought Uitspan Farm about four years ago.  We opened two venues:   a restaurant, The Reservoir, and a wedding venue, The Cellar which is perfect for a wedding with a vintage feel and a modern twist.  The Purple Windmill is a fully operational farm with Vineyards, Lemons and Rooibos Tea, as well as Roll on Lawn. Rooibos tea is also a first in this area.  We are situated on the R44 between Stellenbosch and Paarl (in Klapmuts) making the farm easily accessible.  We have the open spaces for ample parking and the right set up to host an event the size of the IMPI Challenge.  We are excited to welcome entrants to our farm and look forward to a long-standing relationship with the IMPI Challenge team.”
