Yip, I'm there. Hoping for warm weather. At least the paddle appears to be in the day...

My buddy is currently in Middelburg. Says it's freezing. WeatherSA has Sat as 10-28 and Sunday as 13-19 for Nelspruit, but I think we are much higher than Nelspruit so COLDER.

 

I am in an all male team - Ratels. Staying over at Bambi. Hope we meet.

I have only done the short adventure races. How much abseiling is involved in these longers ones cause I am looking to do the one in October?

Usually only one abseil per event, about 15-25m. They supply all equipment for this. Don't miss the October event, it will change your world!

 

I am getting nervous now. 30km trail run this year with a single canoe leg of 12km...and rain is expected Sunday at a max of 7 deg by 11am. Brrrr. Also looks like a cloudy night, so no full moon :( Let the adventure begin.

How did people find the race? That first 30km ride was the longest 30km of my life. And the second one was a hectic descent in the dark. I witnessed three unplanned dismounts, fortunately none resulting in bad injuries.

 

My team spent 6 hours on the last leg - lost in fog on the top of the mountain!

 

Great fun in retrospect - but v. tired today!

Great race. Hard but do'able.

The escarpment did make the riding interesting - both up and down. The down was fun if you had enough light

All 4 members of our team came off badly at that descent. I broke my wrist and my friend tore his glute muscles. We completed the event, but only 13 hours after the dismounts!

 

The last leg took us 8 hours (2 hours more than the 1st 60km)

 

Great fun though!
