The Van Gaalens Cheese Farm in Hartebeespoort (North West Province) will be a hub of excitement on Saturday, 14 March 2015 when thousands of adventure seekers and lovers of the outdoors toe the line at the much anticipated IMPI Challenge Gauteng #1.
Top multi-sport athletes, Ian Don-Wauchope and Carla Van Huyssteen set the course ablaze at Gauteng’s final IMPI Challenge in 2014. Don-Wauchope conquered the course in a lightning fast time of 01 hour 46 minutes 42 seconds, while Van Huyssteen successfully defended her title in the women’s race in a deserving time of 02 hours 04 minutes 18 seconds.
“The IMPI Elite Race was fantastic. It definitely ads a new dimension to trail running. I fully support IMPI Director, Pieter Du Plessis’s ethos of making the IMPI Challenge a true trail run with obstacles,” said Don-Wauchope.
According to Van Huyssteen, all four IMPI structures are equally important. “For the athlete that enjoys competition the IMPI Elite Race is ideal, while participants that enjoy competing together as a team will love the IMPI Challenge. There literally is an IMPI event for all participants,” said Van Huyssteen.
