I will be back, but hopefully for the EXTREME! I came all the way from Cape Town and had a blast! My sole is still running somewhere in the Drakensberg, but unfortunately have to return to my body in Cape Town.

  6. Hi Warren
    Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for this great event. Coming from Australia to run the event was epic. In line with theme of the race of Knights and Dragons…..
    ” There were 24 Dragons but I was the 25th Knight that conquered them all”

    Thanks again for a brilliant event.
    Kind regards
