Last Man Standing!


The BackYard Ultra (BYU) requires athletes to run 6.7 kays every hour, on the hour, for as long as possible, until the last man standing is the winner. Murray & Roberts’ Wandisile Ngodlwana did that for 31 hours non-stop, winning the title of the inaugural event in the new series at Van Gaalen’s Farm in the Magaliesberg, on a testing route. That meant he covered an astonishing 208km, and what made the performance even more astounding was that the thermometer passed the 36-degree mark at midday… not once, but twice! No wonder the pay-off line for the race is “One More Lap!”
