HILARY Bruss of Coddiwomple Trails joined forces with her Cyanotis Adventure Racing team to organise a 36 hour adventure race in the Greytown/Umvoti area over the weekend of August 4 and August 5.

This will be the KZN event of a series to be held in five different locations throughout South Africa.

The motivation behind this series is to develop and improve the sport of adventure racing in South Africa.

For those who are wondering what the adventure racing is all about, Bruss gave the following explanation: “Teams of four members, comprised of three men and a woman, have to run, mountain-bike, kayak, swim and ab-sail while using a compass and map to navigate their way to the finish via a series of checkpoints and transition zones.”

As this is a non-stop event, it requires teams to navigate through the night as well as daylight hours resting for short periods where and when necessary.

“It’s a great way to see a vast area in a relatively short time, and have a huge amount of fun,” she enthused.

More information about this event can be found on the Cyanosis Adventure Racing Team and Coddiwomple Trails Facebook pages.
