Stellenbosch based Du Plessis siblings, Klara (6), Mika (9) and Josua (10) are counting down the days to the action packed IMPI Mini that will take place at the majestic Wiesenhof Wildlife Park (Stellenbosch) on Saturday, 18 November 2017 and Sunday, 19 November 2017.

“I like to play outside and really enjoy climbing over and under things,” says Klara. “IMPI isn’t difficult. It’s fun. I can’t wait to take part with my brother and sister.”

Older sister Mika believes that if her brother can complete the IMPI Mini route, then so can she. “I would love to beat Josua on the route,” admits Mika. “I’ll still enjoy the event if I don’t beat him though. The IMPI Mini is a lot of fun. It’s challenging, but I know that I can get through all of the obstacles. I’ll definitely be inviting some of my friends to take part with me.”

“I can’t wait to take part in the IMPI Mini,” says Josua. “I love obstacle course races. My father has built an obstacle course for me in our backyard. I’d definitely like to build some obstacles one day when I’m old enough. I can’t wait to see how many times I’ll be able to complete the IMPI Mini course.”
