The 2nd edition of this incredibly tough but unimaginable 120km journey through the magnificent mountain Kingdom of Lesotho will take place from 19-21st April 2012.
There will more than likely be a change to day 1, but we will only announce this in the new year as we will spend two weeks in the Kingdom recceing. Granted day 1 will always be tough, but the potential for the new passage through the mountains will mean visiting a new area, and completing three unique stages.
For those who have not seen the promo, please do yourself a favour and watch this! This is an EXTREMELY tough event, as those 2011 runners will confirm. But with a strong will and four months of training this is do-able. You need to be comfortable with the idea of being self sufficient and in BIG mountain terrain (not technical). Fast walking in the mountains will build a lot of the strength you will need when the altitude kicks in, so keep this in mind when you are out there doing the hard yards in preparation.
For those of you who decide to take on this challenge, you will be rewarded with a life changing and remarkable experience that is quite simply unparalleled.

In the meantime, stay fit and healthy and best of luck with entry on the 17th Jan!
Owen, Tam, Dave & the Wildrunner Team
