Organiser
Energy Events

You will run, stumble and crawl through all the iconic Cederberg highlights and visit remote valleys and kloofs that few have ever seen.

You need to be able to look after yourself – Bear Grylls gnawing on scorpions!

 

Training Tips and Hints

1) Train like you mean it. The racing will be fun, if the training is hard.

2) Train with a pack. Cederberg Traverse is not about speed work, but diesel engine power.

3) Train in your race gear with full kit, to get used to it and iron out any issues.

4) Run in the dark, on technical tracks (not the road) using head lamp.
