Once upon a time, before trail running, before Parkour, we hiked up various mountains in South Africa and ran down like crazy people… we called it Extreme Jogging. This blog is a tribute to the good old days, friends & family, my Creator and everybody that love running in nature!
Extremeness: Tough climb
Location: Keiskie farm, Calvinia, South Africa
Joggers: Deryck Nel, Leanie Nel & me
After 98 extreme jogs I was back to do my 99th where it all started, Keiskie farm. It was a beautiful day for running and we decided to go as high as possible, which meant Keiskie mountain (the highest mountain in the Roggeveld region). As always the views (and the high altitude) were breath taking…
