Survival Dash #1 took place on 5th October 2013 at the magnificent Glenburn Lodge in Muldersdrift. This OCR (obstacle course race) was one like no other as Participants got to choose if they wanted to enter as 'survivors' or 'zombies'. The 'zombies' were strategically placed along the course in order to eat as many of the survivor's brains and capture as many of their three life flags as possible. Our participants had to face 7.9km of grueling terrain and 12 hardcore obstacles in order to survive the apocalypse. Fun, fear and fitness were the order of the day! Our overall fastest male and female survivors each got the R5000 cash prize.
