WELCOME TO THE GRIND AT THE TRACK - GET IN THE ZONE AND EMBRACE THE GRIND

 As you may have noticed...we like unique venues. This event is no different.

Our final event of the year will be contested at Zone 7 - Africa's biggest and best Motocross and Enduro motorcycle track and will end off with a huge year end party during the day and into the night.

THE GRIND - Obstacle Course Race has been created for everyone, we offer a unique spectator friendly experience for everyone from corporate fun seekers to fitness enthusiasts and elite athletes. We have a course for everyone including The Rapid Grind 6km with 20 to 30 Obstacles and the Deep Grind 12 km with 30 to 40 Obstacles.

 We chose Zone 7 as our next venue because it ticks all the important boxes-

1: Unique Venue
2: Spectator Friendly
3: Achievable Distance
4: Great place to have a year end party
and most important- LESS RUN MORE FUN

 There will be plenty entertainment during the day and a live band in the evening to kick the holidays off with a bang
