By ADMIN | Published: August 17, 2011
On Saturday 6th August 2011 local George trail runner Jacque Mouton won the Merrell Outeniqua Traverse in a blistering 4 hours and 18 minutes, a winning margin of 25 minutes,from second placed runner and leading lady Landie Visser . After the previous day’s heavy rain and light snow falls, the runners braved the cold but beautifully clear weather conditions on the 10 km , 25 km or 38 km Outeniqua mountain tracks. The course was slippery and testing and it even included some swollen river crossings but not even these obstacles could deter the bruised and tired runners who completed this year’s event. Organisers Tatum Prins and Graham Bird of Mountain Runner Events say a huge THANK YOU to thier title sponsor Merrell, prize sponsors Black Diamond and Quantum Adventures,product sponsor PVM, and Cape Nature for making this event possible.Congratulations to all the runners for an awesome day out and we hope to see you there in 2012!
