The Crazy Store Magalies Challenge hosted by Energy Events SA is one of the toughest races advertised in Gauteng. +- 500 trail runners of the total 1200 participants entered the 36km mountain run which includes a tough section along Magaliesberg Escarpment in the North West Province. For the first year ever, Energy Events added in a 50km route which only 40 souls dared to brave.
Here are our favourite images from both the 36k and 50k.
^The iconic Magaliesberg Escarpment spans between Pretoria and Rustenburg.
^Incredible Ridge Line Running.
^The crazy staff make sure you can find them when you need them most.
^A new ridge line open only to those who took on the 50km challenge.
^Another Hill? Ag no man!
^The 35km runners trek very close to the edge… to close for some.
^Back of the pack and as happy as can be. Mountains make us cheerful.
^Bruce Arnett takes off to fight for 2nd place with only 8km to go.
