From road to gravel – Ulrica Stander taking on the AfricanX Trailrun presented by ASICS

Ulrica and Sean, already well established athletes will be representing Enduro Hub during the 2018 AfricanX Trailrun presented by ASICS.
“Excited and grateful all together, running the African X this weekend. Sean Hulley and myself are both running and experiencing this wonderful event for the first time. I am an endurance athlete, currently running both marathons and ultra marathons. My partner for this event, Sean Hulley, is a very well rounded and balanced athlete with great experience in road running, cycling and triathlons. This epic event is out of our comfort zones but we are extremely excited to give it a good go. We are going to run for fun, experiencing the trials on a whole new level while taking in the beautiful view and environment at Boschendal wine farm.” Ulrica Stander.

Do you have it?

Born in 2009, the event has become an iconic and must-do for all trail runners. From a modest 120 teams in the inaugural event, the AfricanX has grown rapidly and today capped at 350 teams of two runners. After spending 9 fantastic years exploring the beauties and beasts of Kleinmond and the historic Houw Hoek Inn, runners will be taken on a completely new adventure for the 10th year celebration of this prestigious 3 day staged trail run. Join us in the Cape Winelands at our new race village, Boschendal, to celebrate the AfricanX, to celebrate personal achievements, to celebrate each other and to make new memories finding the 2018 beauties and beasts running the unspoilt new trails!
