I have heard about Expedition Africa (#expafrica) for years. It is a grueling multi-day adventure race of around 500km that can take anything from 4 to 7 days to complete. Teams have to navigate while hiking, biking, paddling, peddling, and running in beautiful and remote areas. With some luck, I landed a side kick opportunity to experience it a little. We were part of the media team for Team Black Diamond. Having a bit of a closer look at this event was far beyond inspiring. It was also great fun to bump into a few familiar faces and make new friends too.
They are still gunning for the finish line while I am comfortable behind my desk back in Cape Town. A big shout out to Deidre and Team Black Diamond for a great few days and good luck to everyone still out there.
