The 2019 IMPI Challenge Season will kick off at Coetzenburg (Stellenbosch) this coming Saturday, 06 April 2019.

A trail run with a twist, entrants can look forward to an adrenaline pumping challenge!

“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,” said Pieter du Plessis, IMPI Challenge Race Director.  “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.  You will be challenged, you will experience victories and you will make friends.  This event is perfect for families, friends and even corporates.”

The IMPI Challenge #1 features two entry categories that cater for junior adventure seekers:  the IMPI Mini (ages 6 – 10 years) and the IMPI Dash (ages 10+).

“Junior adventure seekers between the ages of 6 – 10 years will have endless fun in the IMPI Mini which is essentially a 1km route that features 8 supervised obstacles,” continues du Plessis.  “The IMPI Mini entrants can take on the course as many times as they’d like.  The IMPI Dash features a 5km route that includes 11 obstacles and is for entrants that are 10 years and older.  This category is great for parents who want to spend more time with their children.”
