Postponed Until 2021 Mike has entered the 2021 race
One of our long time supporters Mike Job has entered the Grand to Grand Ultra. race and is fund raising in support of our fight against poaching.
The Grand to Grand Ultra is a multi-stage self supported foot race covering 275 kms over 7 days. The race will take place on 20 - 26 September 2020 in Arizona and Utah, USA starting from the edge of the Grand Canyon and finishing on the summit of the Pink Cliffs of the Grand Staircase.
It is a challenge that requires dedication in training and strong mental strength in the face of adversity during the race. It is a fitting challenge to honour all the unsung heros who face the threat of poaching on a daily basis pushing them to their mental and physical limits.
The funds raised will be used to support our on going projects below.
