Post IMPI Challenge returns to Hartbeespoort

The much anticipated New Balance IMPI Challenge returns to Van Gaalens Cheese Farm, Hartbeespoort on Saturday, 28 and Sunday, 29 September 2013. Participants can look forward to overcoming new and improved obstacles.

“We always like to keep it fresh by adding new, fun obstacles,” says Pieter Du Plessis, Race Director. “Participants can look forward to new obstacles, an enjoyable route, a surprise water point and even screens at the finish to enjoy the rugby on Saturday. The New Balance IMPI Challenge Gauteng#2 will feature fewer water based obstacles, but more challenging obstacles. There will be dark wet tunnels, medium height obstacles and more mud holes. A lot of the obstacles will be closer to the start and finish area, making them ideal for spectator support. We are very excited to introduce the “colour me up” obstacle, keeping IMPI bright, fun and challenging”.


Venue: Van Gaalens Cheese Farm (Hartebeespoort / North West Province)
Format: Participants can enter individually or as part of a team (teams vary in size from 2 – 10 people, although you start together, you do not need to finish together)
