“The IMPI Challenge had a magnificent 2018 season.  Entrants were challenged, victories were enjoyed and friendships were made,” says Pieter du Plessis, IMPI Challenge Race Director.  “We look forward to building on the energy in 2019.  Without letting the cat out of the bag, IMPI Warriors can look forward to spectacular trail running combined with adrenaline pumping obstacles that will require crawling, swinging, climbing, jumping – just about everything fun.  It’s not the IMPI Challenge if you’re not challenged at some point.  We invite all adventure seekers to step outside of their comfort zones and take on the IMPI Challenge.  This event is perfect for families, friends and even corporates.”

IMPI Warrior, Armin Botha (Potchefstroom) made his IMPI Challenge debut at the IMPI Challenge #1 (Cape Town) in April 2018.  “I knew that I’d be going up against the top okes, and was just hoping to podium. The obstacles were hard especially the brick carry, while the scenery was beautiful.  I was blessed with the win.”

Nadine Cahill also claimed gold on her first attempt at the IMPI Challenge #2 (KZN) in June 2018.  “I definitely plan to take part in more IMPI races.  The trails were amazing – hilly but beautiful.  The obstacles are challenging.  My team mates warned me beforehand that the IMPI Challenge is renowned for its heavy carries.   These were tough, but enjoyable.”
