Racing in the Transkei Tuff

The second edition of the Merrell Transkei Tuff presented by Out the Green Box has showcased vast support from local and national teams, where over 26 teams will take on this adventurous 150km expedition.

Merrell will once again headline the Transkei Tuff, in collaboration with Out the Green Box as presenting sponsor. This dynamic store-duo have grown together over the past year, where Out the Green Box stocks a wide variety of Merrell technical and leisure wear to the Eastern Cape region.

"Merrell challenges you to get out there, and leave your comfort zone. We as Out the Green Box like the idea that people are willing to live the green-power life style, and without this lifestyle change green-power does not work" expresses CEO of Out the Green Box; Craig Powell.

Powell further states that by partnering with Merrell, both companies are then challenging people to step out of their comfort zone. "If we are saving the environment via means of renewable energy, then we should spend some time in it, and enjoy it for all it has to offer" shares Powell.

Duo's and Four-man-teams  will descend into the Transkei seeking  adventure as they prepare to complete this 150km expedition within 24 hours. Wavecrest Beach Hotel & Spa will be the race head quarters, hosting teams and supporters alike. Those that cannot be there to support their teams, will be able to follow the event by means of live tracking, brought to you by Sportraxs.

The line up of competitive teams looks fierce, and supporters from all over can prepare for some serious Dot-Watching in anticipation of which team is truly "Tuff Enuff" to cross the finish line first at the Merrell Transkei Tuff presented by Out The Green Box.

The race takes place from April 7-9th.
