The Extra Mile Sponsored by Investec Rhino Lifeline is Sabi Sands’ first trail run, with a fundraising dinner, organised by More Community Trust in partnership with the Sabi Sand Pfunanani Trust and Endangered Wildlife Trust.
This annual event raises funds for communities in the area – one of the poorest in South Africa – to further their development and make a real difference in the lives of the residents.
The run is open to everyone – families, friends, workmates and community members join the professionals on either the 10km or 21km trail through the scenic Sabie area.
This year’s event was a resounding success, with over R220 000 raised from the race alone. After the race, our runners and attendees were treated to food trucks and stands selling favourites like boerie rolls and stir-fry, as well as tents selling beer and gin & tonic. A complimentary foot and calf rub also awaited our hard-working athletes.
The Kids Zone was a real hit, with loads of activities, a jumping castle, and a visit by some special friends from the Kinyonga Reptile Centre.
Our auction dinner at the Protea Hotel, Kruger Gate was the perfect way to end an incredible day filled with laughs, fun and camaraderie.
Thank you to everyone who attended, and to our amazing MC, Riccardo Gressel aka Warrior Ric.
