Giving it horns – Georgina’s SkyRun2020 Training Gains Pace

Last weekend CITW Ambassador and SkyRun2020 participant, Georgina Crisp took the opportunity to get in a solid 30 km training run at Rooiberg in Limpopo Province’s Waterberg bushveld. She was accompanied by a crew from the Nedbank Tour de Tuli as well as a convoy of Land Rover Owners’ Club members who volunteer for the Tour every year.

As you can imagine, with lockdown restrictions eased, the team certainly wasn’t going to miss this chance to get into the bush!

The SkyRun is a famously arduous event held high in the mountains of the Eastern Cape, so please support Georgina’s most noble fundraising effort for CITW through her GivenGain campaign here.

On the same weekend, another loyal CITW supporter, notorious prankster* and Tour Cycle Leader, Adam Wood, was also training for the SkyRun2020 – at the extraordinary Mount Anderson Water Reserve, situated on the very edge of the Mpumalanga Escarpment.

* Adam famously hid Georgina’s mountain bike in a tree one night on Tour last year – to which she retaliated by adding a generous pile of elephant dung to his sleeping bag! Adam eventually had to throw his sleeping bag away as they could not get all the grass and twigs out of it. Whatever the material is, it’s like Velcro for burrs and sticks, etc.

We are looking forward to Georgina and Adams’ SkyRun, if only to keep up with their antics, which will no doubt only become more inventive!

Here are a few more images from past SkyRuns to whet our appetites.
