The Namiba Crossing, Wildrun®, developed from the Richtersveld Transfrontier Wildrun®, has become known as one of the toughest, most stunningly scenic and unique trail running stage race events in Southern Africa.
This iconic event is the first cross-border trail running event in the world; extending to nearly 200km, it is a five day crossing from South Africa to Namibia through the heart of the /Ai/Ais-Richtersveld Transfrontier Park.
This race is supported, allowing runners to be unencumbered by kit and enjoy some of the most stunning scenery they are ever likely to experience.
For the first three days, the route traverses some of the most spectacular areas of the Richtersvevld National Park. On day 4, the route will cross the Orange River at De Hoop into Namibia and the untouched southern section of the Fish River Canyon.
This 50km day will take runners into a wilderness that is completely inaccessible by vehicle and rich in wildlife such as Hartmann’s mountain zebra, kudu, gemsbok, springbok, Namibian wild horses and giraffe.
After a long, tough day, runners will spend the evening in the canyon at a natural hot spring, before taking on the final day of roughly 26km to finish at the /Ai-/Ais Hot Springs Resort and wrap up a powerful and truly unique experience.
