Website : https://www.nfnf.co.za/homepage/races

An expedition unrivalled - 500km of Expedition style Adventure Racing in the remotest part in South Africa.

Situated in the far north-western corner of South Africa you will find the most awe-inspiring mountain desert. Lined by the enormous sharp crags of the Vensterberge and intersected by the mighty Orange River, the lifeblood, bringing with it, immense life to this desolate area - Lush vegetation, river channels, rapids, and fireflies. Home to the greatest succulent diversity in the world, the towering Halfmensboom, the stunning Hartmann's Mountain Zebra, and the beautiful Nama people. It’s their special culture that lead to the area being proclaimed a world heritage site, and an incredibly beautiful one at that!
