DO IT NOW Magazine #32 now available


Words: Tracy Knox

DO IT NOW Magazine's last issue in 2013 sees out the year in grand style with another exciting line-up of adventure, sport and lifestyle articles.

Cover stories in DO IT NOW Magazine #32 include recipes for a fabulously fresh and festive three-course meal to treat the family to during the holidays. What do you get when you combine trail running and wine tasting? The Ways2Wine, a new event on the calendar where the only prize on offer was to win your own weight in wine for the best-dressed team. It's that time of the year when we look at ways to make the lives of children in orphanages, homes, and hospitals all over South Africa just a little bit brighter and bearable. The annual Toy Run does just that and over the past 31 years, this event has grown exponentially. This year it was estimated that more than 35,000 toys were collected in Cape Town alone - enough to fill two very large trucks. Then get a taste for the outdoor life with the Spur Adventure Duo series of sprint adventure racing events, one of the best family fun ways to spend a day outside.

Other articles to look out for include part one of the epic story about Jolandie Rust, the first woman to circumnavigate Africa, solo and on a bike; get some great freestyle paddling tips; take a glimpse into the world of adventure racing; find out more about the three South Africans who made it into the final selection stage of the Axe Space competition, where one of them is guaranteed to go into space; find out more about the causes of common sport injuries and how to treat them; then we explore Nepal and discover what makes Reunion such a fantastic holiday destination; and if you're looking for a gift, then check out the latest reviews on movies, games and books. Readers are also invited to showcase their photographic skills by entering the quarterly inFOCUS Photo competition, which closes on 20 December 2013, where they stand a chance to win R500.
