Last Man Standing!

0 Shares

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!”
