Race Idea

Feral Duo24

The idea behind the full series came after speaking to many athletes who have taken part in the ‘old’ Merrell Eden Duo and who would love to have that race back as a permanent feature. After doing a recce of the Eden area in October we decided that it's time to start a similar race again and at the same time we recognised an opportunity that exists in the adventure event world to start a whole new racing series. But, with a few key adventure racing characteristics.

What is the Feral Duo24 Race Series

They are not the classic Adventure Races (AR), but would be an incredible introduction to Adventure Racing .

A 24 hour Duo (Pairs), GPS navigated, multi-disciplined race. This includes trail running, kloofing, mountain hiking, paddling and mountain biking. There will be no ropework, zip lines or other obstacles.

The race will take the top athletes 12-14 Hours and the last teams 20-24 hours.

The main idea is to get the athletes to GET FERAL in spectacular wilderness areas. Competitors will experience a ‘journey race’ in the most beautiful remote places we can find. Participants will be able to navigate with GPS (compulsory) which takes away the stress of having to have the skills to navigate with compass and 1:50 000 maps. This will open the doors to many athletes that felt they were unable to race because of the lack of navigation skills.

The races will be a test of endurance mixed with pure adventure.

Each race will have a kloofing section, 2 mountain bike legs, 1-2 trail run/hike legs and 2 paddling legs.

There will be three races in the series with more races being developed for the future. There will also be a championship race every two years (venue to be advised).
