6th Namib Desert Challenge - October THIS year

I mentioned during the event of talk about a time-frame shift for the running of the Namib Desert Challenge. The organisers, Kinetic Events, want to move the event later in the year. 

The dates for the 6th edition of this event are confirmed and they've been announced as the 28 October to 1 November 2013. You can expect conditions similar to what we had (hot, hot, hot - I don't really think there's any other option out here!) and an excellent event offering.

Registration is open and they're offering an early bird discount of 5% to those who register before the end of April (that's this month). 

If you're not in for this year, keep in mind that the event will be run next year - and thereafter - at a similar time - late October-ish.

The event website is You'll find the race itinerary and registration details all there.

One of my favourite photos from the race by Hannisze (see the fabulous albums on Facebook). This was from the final stage and these are the front runners. They ran most of the way together, which was really sweet. Here they jumped for Hannisze and she caught it beautifully with all of them in the air. What a winner! It really conveys the spirit of this superb event.
