The runners are now at the halfway mark as they trek along the magnificent Richtersveld National Park on day three of the Richtersveld Transfrontier Wildrun.

Since Monday, 13 June 2016, 58 runners have been tackling the park’s wild terrain as they edge towards the finish line of the 200km race, which they should reach by Thursday.

Here’s a peek into their journey …
