Editor's Notes:
The distance from the Ficksburg border post to the Katse Dam is about 150 kilometres but due to the mountain passes this could take you up to three hours travel time. You will need a valid passport to cross the border into Lesotho. All proceeds of the race go to the Katse Community for Social Development.
