Sani Stagger Endurance Race 2015

The Sani Stagger Endurance race, 'the ultimate endurance race', is on this year on 28 November 2015, starting and ending at Sani Pass in the Southern Drakensberg.

The race is organised by the local Sani Athletic Club, under the rules of both Athletics South Africa and KwaZulu Natal Athletics.The total number of runners is limited to 550, making for a uniquely exclusive athletic event for those who get to take on the challenge.

The magnificent Sani Pass climbs through a narrow valley cut deep in the rock by the Mkhomozana River, steeply wending its way up the face of the Drakensberg escarpment to an altitude of 2874m above sea level. The climb to the Sani Pass Summit is 1300 metres and is completed by participants in just over 20 kilometres. This is one of the steepest races in the country but if the daunting climb does not take your breath away, the view of the underlying Drakensburg certainly will.

Once the summit has been reached, the downward journey is by no means easier, considering the rocky and winding road surface. All those who finish this race will receive a medal.

The Sani Stagger Marathon has been ranked by the Runner’s World race judges as a well organised and well presented event. Since the initiation of their ranking system, it has often voted as one of South Africa’s top ten marathons. In 2007 it was regarded as the country’s second best marathon.
