Namib Desert Challenge

The Namib Desert Challenge is a 220km multi-day trail race, which will test both your physical and mental limits. Competitors originate from all four corners of the globe and will test themselves against the elements. Extreme heat, rugged terrain, rocky-mountains, the famous Sesriem Canyon, culminates in the summiting of two of the highest dunes in the world: Dune 45 and “Big Daddy”.

We have found the perfect balance to cater for all types of athlete/runner, if you’re a racing snake, a middle of the pack, or just along for the adventure, we believe the NDC will exceed all your expectations… [read more]

Rick Gannon said: "A very well organised adventure race, the Kinetic support team were outstanding. I had a great 5 days running through a majestic landscape! The stages took us over mountains through gorges, 2 river crossings and over the ancient mighty sand dunes of Namibia. There was lots of game with Springbok coming very close and often running across our path. The team had to work hard to re-route some parts of the course due to major flooding. The final day was no exception, with a tough stage through the dunes! I had left the best until last - under such an amazing backdrop, I proposed to my partner Laura! Our wedding is planned for March 2013! Thank you to all the team who helped make this week so memorable."
