Moolmanshoek Game Reserve
One of the most infamous mountain races on the SA trail running calendar is just around the corner. The Powertraveller 4 Peaks takes place September 26th in the beautiful Moolmanshoek game reserve along the Maloti Route in the eastern Free State. The 24km mountain challenge incorporates four lung busting peaks, with excruciating ascents & descents that form a horse shoe shape, enclosing the picturesque Moolmanshoek Reserve. Preparation is a must for this race as the terrain in not for the faint hearted, the route is unmarked & unsupported. Participants must be capable navigators & carry the strict equipment inventory under their own steam.
Powertraveller are confirmed as the title sponsor for the second consecutive year. A wide range of high end portable power solutions will be available to participants for purchase, which is valuable as the average race duration can be anywhere between 3 and 9 hours. There will be a “Recharge Zone” available over the course of the weekend for those staying in the reserve’s camping facilities. “We are excited to partner with race organisers Pure Adventures once again” says Wintec MD Rene Winter. “The 4 Peaks Mountain Challenge is a tough race, the toughest 24km you are likely to experience. The weather is a huge game changer, as we saw last year, it can cause havoc with your strategy. The guys and girls partaking in this event are true adventure seekers, making this event a perfect fit for the Powertraveller brand”. There will be fantastic spot prizes from Powertraveller up for grabs during the course of the weekend, keep an eye on the Powertraveller 4 Peaks Facebook group for more info.
The event is limited to 200 athletes; entries as well as more information on the Powertraveller 4 Peaks Mountain Challenge can be found at www.4peaks.co.za.
