Five days, two African countries, one ancient mountain wilderness

Five days, two African countries, one ancient mountain wilderness. A 200km, five-day foot race from South Africa to Namibia through the ancient arid landscape of the /Ai/Ais-Richtersveld Transfrontier Park. From the crystal fields of Sendelingsdrif in South Africa to the infamous giant boulders of Tatasberg deep in the /Ai/Ais-Richtersveld Transfrontier Park; this unparalleled journey then crosses the Orange River into Namibia and the wild lands of the Fish River Canyon.

This is the running experience of a lifetime; this is The Namibia Crossing. The first three days traverse the mountainous wilderness of the Richtersveld National Park until crossing over the iconic Orange River into Namibia on day four. This day takes the runners through the untouched southern portions of the Fish River canyon, to overnight at a unique and very remote natural hot springs camp, before the final day of canyon running into the well-known Ai Ais Hotsprings Resort.
