Event Description

The Klipspringer Challenge is a 2-Day Stage Race that takes place over weekend of 27/28 April 2019, from Augrabies Falls National Park (Northern Cape). There is a 1 day option, where participants can join on either day 1 or 2.

A spectacularly grueling 40km desert run through the most magnificent and remote landscapes the Kalahari has to offer.  Run along the rim of one of the world’s most dramatic granite canyons, along the banks of South Africa’s legendary Orange River to the soundtrack of the unmistakeable fish eagle cry, over otherworldly moonscapes and through unforgiving desert sand.  This is trail running and nature at its most intense.
