IMOI Challenge takes place at Van Gaalens.
The much loved IMPI Challenge returns to Van Gaalens Cheese Farm (Hartebeespoort / North West Province) on Saturday, 15 and Sunday, 16 March 2014. With five categories to choose from, the IMPI Challenge is ideal for the entire family.
According to Pieter Du Plessis, IMPI Challenge Race Director, the IMPI Challenge is a fun, but tough event that caters for the entire family. Van Gaalens is a real trail run location. Our route takes participants along a river system, giving the impression that you are running in a jungle. When looking for the ideal IMPI Challenge location, we make special effort in finding really beautiful trail run routes. The obstacles are then made as natural and exciting as possible. Van Gaalens, as a venue, ticks all the boxes. If you’re between the ages 06 – 60 years and looking for a fun challenge, this event is just for you”.
Pieter Du Plessis: Race Director
“The IMPI Challenge is original, authentic and a must do calendar event.”
