In an effort to promote healthy lifestyles among South African school children, we’re proud to be supporting the rise of mountain biking as a popular sport. Encouraging physical activity among the youth in South Africa is of vital importance. Not only does it encourage exercise and fresh air, but it also builds confidence and teaches valuable life skills.
Big Box Containers love to cheer from the sidelines as we continue to actively participate in a range of cycling, running and swimming events, from the AfricanX TrailRun to the Night Trail Series and the popular Wines2Whales MTB events and even school sports. So strap on your helmet and join us for a thrilling ride through our latest involvement at St Stithians College in Gauteng!
St Stithians College’s Mountain Biking Program
The St Stithians College has a vibrant Mountain Bike Programme that provides an excellent way for their students to explore the great outdoors. They have a unique offering in the mountain bike circuit with more than 7 km of single-track. The route combines a number of A and B lines which can be used for novice and expert riders. In addition, it is a trail which offers safety for the rider, as it is situated in the secure campus, with easy access to Sandton and the surroundings.
“It is a space where every boy feels valued as an important link in the team.” – St Stithians College
Big Box Containers contributed a 6m dual office and storage container to the St Stithinas College MTB program. This impressive container is in close proximity to their Mountain Biking circuit from where their young men can cheer on their teammates during biking practices, MTB tournaments and other biking events.
There is no doubt that this new Big Box Container contributes to the benefits of their mountain biking program that extend well beyond just physical fitness. Mountain Biking is a sport unlike any other. It is a place where their boys find a niche, a home, and their own space. It is a sport where their student’s successes are celebrated, whether it is a nemesis of a hill conquered or a podium in a National Championship.
