Five annual events forms part of this series hosted in all over South Africa. It falls under our Expedition Africa 120km banner and gives teams an opportunity to test their skills over a longer adventure race.

To grow the sport of adventure racing we host a few 25 km Adventures in the Gauteng area, JHB. These events are geared towards all levels of fitness, especially for a very beginner and families.

We also host the Black Diamond night trail running series on Golf Courses (JHB) including a 4km or 8km distance since 2009.
