Warrior Race 2013

May 12, 2013 - a day that might very well live in infamy. In under 3 weeks time, Darin, Auntie Nona, Auntie Vera, Kagiso and Tom will be taking part in a Warrior Race. Here is a description from the website that explains a bit of what these men and women will be subjecting themselves to:

The Warrior Rookie race consists of a 6.5km(4mi) course, with 15 adrenaline pumping obstacles.  On average, participants will encounter an obstacle every 500m.  The Rookie race is all about having fun, but make no mistake, participants will be challenged and team work will be the order of the day.  Participants will be expected to climb over some larger than life obstacles, crawl in and climb over mountains of mud, slide down steep slopes at lightning speed, jump off high…very high platforms into water and heaps more!

Some of the obstacles Rookie Warriors will encounter:
The “Aaaaa”valanche
“T-t-t-t”ower of Rage
Touch of Mud
Arctic Mud
Spider Web
and many more…

Why would these 5, relatively sensible (and in the case of my husband, relatively sedentary) people want to take part in something so physical, so muddy, so exhausting?

Here are a few reasons:

Not to mention the other reasons that have already passed through these doors and the reasons that will come through in the future. These 5 individuals will be taking part in the Warrior Race to benefit the children of Tshepo ya Bana. There are multiple maintenance and building projects that we hope to accomplish in the next year that require funds that we don’t currently have. To do this, they need YOU.
