Entries for the 2017 Challenge haven’t opened as yet, but keep an eye on our page to be notified on the latest news and forthcoming race information.
2016 was yet another successful year, as the 6th Magaliesberg Challenge was held on 13 August and took place at the beautiful Van Gaalen Restaurant. The venue, situated in the Magaliesberg region is located in Hartebeespoort, North West from Pretoria. This venue had everything one could want while tackling the dusty trails. While runners enjoyed the fauna and flora along this majestic trail, it was also the perfect opportunity for the rest of the family to get out and enjoy some quality time, while cheering on Mom and Dad.
The picturesque route included a 12km River Trail, a 22km Intermediate Trail, the 36km Mountain Madness Trail and of course, for the absolute crazy at heart, a 50km Epic Mountain Run! Each runner received a branded Crazy Store First Ascent t-shirt and cap. These are sought after items and absolute must-haves to assist runners in conquering the mountain!
Who could forget the whacky marshals? Our marshals came to the party, crazy style, by dressing the part. A crazy gorilla could be spotted from time to time jumping out of the bushes, ensuring that the runners were alert and awake, while a mad hatter marshal caused mayhem while assisting runners over the water bridge.
