Crazy Store Magalies Challenge 15'


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.
