Three days of your life you will never forget.
Follow along the footsteps of the ancient Khoisan, and take a run through history, as you run through time, along the ox wagon tracks of the Voortrekkers, to emerge in the jeep tracks of the modern day Karoo farm.
Come and experience the heart and soul of the Karoo and its people, while you have the run of your life.
3 days of grueling mountains. Resting by the fire at night, while enjoying the trademark Karoo hospitality, and bedding down under the stars. Breathing the fresh Karoo air before you wake up for a predawn start, so that you can experience the wonderful Karoo sunrise as you climb your way through the course.
