They showed incredible pace right from the start and maintained it all throughout the 107 hours of grueling terrain and environments they had to run, mountain bike, climb and kayak through!
Taking an early and large lead in the first kayak stage, their subsequent performance was flawless with excellent navigation and an aggressive pace keeping them ahead of their competitors. They are also the first team from South Africa to win an ARWS event outside of Southern Africa. Their next race will be at the World Championships in Wymoming, USA, in August.
