The Challenge

Is your goal to run 5 km run or cycle 50 km in one go, or do you want to keep up your fitness levels in the following month as we head into the slow season? We promise we have something for everyone! Choose a running or cycling distance that suits you, and complete it in one go or over several days in various stages. No one is watching, it is only you, yourself, and your goal and it goes for a fantastic cause: the Namibian desert-adapted black Rhino looked after by Save the Rhino Trust, Namibia.

Race Package

During online entry, you will indicate if you want a race package include a medal (NAD 100) and a technical shirt (add NAD 200). If you live in Windhoek or Swakop you can pick up your race packet for free after 7 December 2020, or we will send it to you via courier for an additional NAD 100 (Namibia only). To save on courier costs, runners/riders in the same town can let us know after entry to combine their packages and only pay for one.
