I entered the Absa Cape Epic...
This year I am partnering with John Soper. After many many hours of training and discussing this event, I can't wait for us to finally tackle it together! I am sure he will be pointing out the fauna, flora and various bird types whilst I desperately try to keep pace with him!

Best Results:
Epic 2017 and Epic 2018 - two great adventures with great partners.
