Promising to take you to treacherous, dangerous and hostile environments, Expedition Africa should appear on every aspiring adventure racer’s bucket list. Last year, the race was set in the Zulu region and even the most experienced racers in the field admitted that it offered some of the longest and most gruelling sections they had ever encountered.
Be prepared to get very lost, sleep in some pretty risky surroundings and feel thankful that you come home alive after this one. With the 2014 race due to take place on South Africa’s Wild Coast, organisers have told competitors to prepare for long sections with few transitions due to the remoteness of the region. Looks set to be a fun one!
