A Brand New Challenge4th February 2019
For 2019 the three course distances; 45km, 22km and 12km, will still be offered but all courses will be run in reverse to what they have been previously.
This change will present a brand new challenge for runners, where once it was a uphill slog, will now be a downhill charge, unfortunately the opposite will also be true. Will the reverse courses be quicker or slower? Only time will tell.
This change will improve the experience for runners, watching the morning mist rise off the water during the first few kilometres creating a magical experience, while the slightly wider trail through this area will reduce congestion on the course. The shade afforded by the narrow valley that is now the last stretch of the event will be welcomed as runners head toward the finish line.
If you are tackling the Jabulani Challenge for the first time you will not be disappointed. If you’ve run the event before why not return to see the changes for yourself? Don’t delay if you’re still thinking about entering. 2019 promises to be a year of firsts so why not make it your first run at the Jabulani Challenge. It surely won’t be your last either.
