We will have a new champion

E-mail Print PDF

No previous female champion has entered for the 2018 PiA Solar Baviaanskloof Trail Run, so on Saturday we will crown, with our traditional spekboom, a new champion.

She will also take on a second challenge, lifting the Alan Ainslie black rhino trophy!

This website, and our Twitter feed, has numerous images of the black rhino Legend award, the black rhino floating trophies in bronze and the stunning leopard print for our Legends of Legends award.

Alan Ainslie is a world renowned-wilderness sculptor and artist and, thanks to Alan's generosity, we are thrilled to be in a position to have his art as our awards.

If you are running with us in the Baviaans, we agree, especially if you are at the sharp end of the run.

This coming Saturday our 1st male and 1st female will receive the Alan Ainslie bronze Black Rhino floating trophies

Those rhino are to scale, both size and weight, as Jessica discovered ...
