Just because you’re not a super runner who can endure the 200km, five-day Richtersveld Wildrun in June doesn’t mean you can’t have a sneak peak at some of the scenic terrain that the racers will enjoy.

The run takes place from 13 to 17 June 2016 and will push the runners’ endurance levels to the maximum while offering them stunning views of the |Ai-|Ais/Richtersveld Transfrontier Park. The race is arranged by Wildrunner, a company that organises trail-running events in South Africa and Lesotho.

Take a look at some of the views the runners will enjoy ...
