Last week-end, our little crew of 5 runners set off to run the Momentum Cape Times Knysna Forest marathon and half marathon for the Karoo Predator Project.
Special congratulations go to our baboon researcher (Marion) for whom it was the first race ever. She had to train hard after fieldwork in the hot and then freezing Karoo during 3 months to prepare for the event!
Well done too to our field technician (Kai) for being ranked 99th out of more than 6000 people, to Ferdi (a European friend) for accomplishing his first marathon on trail and to Gemma (another European friend) for joining the group and running very well.
After the race, our little team went out for a nice pizza and Marine could not resist an awesome South African lemon meringue!
