Friendships gained at ProNutro AfricanX Trailrun

Taking part in a three day stage trail run as part of a two member team might be considered a challenge in itself to most trail running enthusiasts. Imagine meeting your team mate for the first time the night before the start of Stage One.

Although this was the case for Al Leslie and Matthew Daneel at the 2013 ProNutro AfricanX Trailrun the experience was so memorable that they’ve teamed up again for the 2014 event.

“For me the most memorable part of the 2013 ProNutro AfricanX Trailrun was the scenery, getting to know Matt, bantering with the other runners and the cold beer at the end.” said Al Leslie.

“We had serious post-race blues last year,” continues Matthew Daneel. “We couldn’t wait to rekindle the ‘bromance’ that AfricanX created for Al and me. We had so much fun on the trails, plenty of banter and laughs as we ran. We managed a 10th overall finish last year and we would love to improve on that.”

South Africa’s most exciting three day stage trail run, the ProNutro AfricanX returns to Elgin/Grabouw at the Festival Village on the grounds of the Houw Hoek Inn during the weekend of 14 – 16 March 2014.

Teamwork forms an essential part of this event, with participants having to rely on each other’s experience, strength and expertise in order to complete the route. Teams of two (male/female/mixed) will be seen battling it out on a route varying in distance between 25-38km each day.

The three routes have been planned in such a way that the participants will have the opportunity to tackle a different scenic route each day, allowing them to enjoy the full beauty of the Overberg.
