National SA Schools 120 Adventure Race
The National SA School’s 120 is an excellent event held in a difference province each year. Although it is not compulsory as a prequalifier for the AC4S it is highly recommended. Over the years we have seen that teams who participate and finish the SA Schools 120 have a huge advantage over teams who are not so well prepared. Please check out www.ar.co.za for more details as to up and coming adventure races.
“UBUNTU” ADVENTURE RACE AT SA CHAMPS – Race Report 2013
From the 22nd – 24th September, Stanford’s Team “Ubuntu” travelled to the Inkwenkwezi in the Eastern Cape, to take part in the South African National Schools Adventure Racing Championships. The team consisted of Benno Prinsloo, Lachlan Truesdale, David Morris and team captain Abigail Joubert. All four team members are still regarded as junior racers (3 U/15’s and 1 U/16); however, they entered and competed at the national U/19 level.
43 teams from schools around the country entered the race, all keen to prove their abilities at national level. The race was just over 60km through some rough Eastern Cape terrain (including the beach!) and proved to be a real test of endurance and character.
Despite the tough competition and conditions, as well as being the youngest team in the U/19 age category, Team Ubuntu finished a very respectable 8th overall. This proved to be a great learning experience for the youngsters, proving that Ubuntu will certainly be a force to be reckoned with in the future! Mr Steven Willson
