Mont-Aux-Sources Challenge - 9 September 2017
The prestigious 50km cross-country Mont-Aux-Sources Challenge takes place in the Royal Natal Park, part of the Ukhahlamba-Drakensberg World Heritage Site and home to the endangered Bearded Vulture.
The Bearded Vulture once roamed freely from the Cape of Good Hope, along the eastern mountain spine of Africa, and into northwest Africa. Now it is thought that the only population left in the southern hemisphere resides in the isolated and rugged Maluti-Drakensberg highlands, and that there are less than 100 pairs left.
Make no mistake, the Old Mutual Sunday Tribune Mont-Aux-Sources Challenge is a toughie, but it’s definitely worth the blood, sweat and tears, and will certainly be an experience of a lifetime.
Expect to run through some of our country’s most rugged and beautiful scenery. Your route will take you through the Mahai Valley and up towards the escarpment where you will have to tackle the chain ladders and then scramble down the Gully. This race is a spectacular adventure, and worth every ache you will suffer afterwards!

The Old Mutual sponsored Wild Series events include Three Cranes Challenge, the iMfolozi MTB Challenge and the Golden Gate Challenge.
