“I think I spent more time wondering why I had signed up for a race like this than actually enjoying it. That said, it took about 5 minutes before I was looking for the next one. They are great adventures and Sri Lanka is calling my name!” — Sam Barkham
“There is magic at a multi-stage race and this magic comes from the people. Not only the runners, but the organisers, volunteers and the local people of the unique landscape you are running through. A multi-stage race brings out a rawness in people that there is no hiding from; we see each other at our best, at our worst and everything in between, and somehow this develops such strong bonds and friendships are forged for life.” — Lucja Leonard (Australia)
“This was the most brutal and challenging thing I have ever completed, and I would do it again.” — Jacques Potgieter (South Africa)
“I can’t say enough about this race. It has been amazing, interesting, brutal, and beautiful” — Edson Kumbwamba (Malawi)
