The 5th and final race of the 2013 WCAD Series took place in the Villiersdorp region with the start and finish at Theewaters Sport Club. Long course teams were treated to some breathtaking scenery as they passed through Hottentots Holland and Groenlandberg reserves.
The’ Weather Gods’ chose, once more, to turn this epic challenge into a battle against the elements but competitors showed amazing grit and determination to get themselves through this beautiful course and most of them even seemed to keep their sense of humor intact! Well done to everyone who pitched up and special congrats to those who got to the finish line!!!

The route consisted of a 3km run followed by 20km MTB and 4 km hike in the mountains and finished off with the RUSH adventure zone including a rope crossing over the Palmiet river and short tubing section on the river.
