South Africans are world-renowned for their love of extreme endurance sporting activities and their ability to organise world-class events. Some of these events are recognised as the oldest, largest and toughest in the world. Held in locations that range from rugged coastlines, lush green valleys, berg, bush and dessert, they offer some of the most scenic countryside to be found worldwide. Each year, thousands of competitors pit themselves against the elements and test their mettle to take part in many of South Africa`s hardest physical challenges. From the cold of the highest mountains to the unforgiving heat of the desert, by foot, water or bike seemingly ordinary people take on these endurance sporting events. Whether seeking to prove themselves as athletes, or attempting to escape the humdrum, one thing they all have in common is an unbreakable drive to test the very limits of their endurance.
