Running Wild

Trail running involves going out into the great outdoors and running and hiking a distance, sometimes over a period of a few days. This makes it quite a different ballgame to running on a treadmill at the gym, or going for a run through your suburb. ...PDF icon Running Wild

Richtersveld Wildrun

Placing one foot in front of the other as a method of transport takes us back to our roots, our basic instincts. The simple act of running. It’s about being in the wild, surviving and fulfilling a primal need to cover ground in search of food and a...PDF icon Richtersveld Wildrun

Running the Beaches

It’s an impeccable day on a neverending beach in paradise. Brad and I are swearing like sailors and feeling like shipwrecks. Objectively speaking, we aren’t that close to dying, but we (or maybe it’s just me) are muttering profanities as if they’re...PDF icon Running the Beaches

It’s Only Real if You Share it

The Richtersveld Transfrontier Park is a mountainous desert – vast, desolate and merciless. During a challenging, four-day adventure, RW Features Ed Bryony McCormick discovered there’s not really much point to life’s dramatic experiences, unless you ...PDF icon It’s Only Real if You Share it

A Run to Remember

Situated in northern Namaqualand, at first glance, the huge, arid landscape of the Richtersveld seems devoid of all life. Look a little closer, however, and you’ll discover a biosphere home to a startling diversity of animals and plants, specially...PDF icon A Run to Remember

Where the Wild Things Are

It was impossible to conceal my emotions as I crested the final headland and got a full view of the Transkei’s iconic Hole In The Wall. The finish line was in plain sight across the wide river mouth, and I stopped to catch my breath and fully absorb...PDF icon Where the Wild Things Are
