After a fairy tale finish to the inaugural Munga, we decided to open up entries as early as February. Why? People needed more time to train! Yes, it was hot, and yes it was isolated, but thats what you want, isn’t it? Many stories of perseverance and resilience made there way back to the race office as riders were battling the heat and vast open spaces of the Karoo. Most centred on the unexpected privilege of being isolated for so long, with nothing but time and your thoughts. Lives were changed, dreams shifted, and the future for some people irrevocably moved in a new and exciting direction. This, ultimately, is what the Munga is about. What are you waiting for…
