As you might very well know, we are both very passionate about our sport and always up for a good challenge. As a result, we decided to enter the 2013 Salomon SkyRun Lite [the 65km version], with the 'full' SkyRun being a 100km event!!
We arrived in Lady Grey on the Thursday afternoon before the event and was greeted by a burning mountain - that after we were informed that there were no rain fall since April and that there are no water on the mountain! But that night everything changed...
It started raining and did not stop until the event was over. We faced pouring rain, howling winds of up to 100 km/h and even ice rain on the mountain. The conditions deteriorated to such an extend that the 100Km event was cancelled and all effort on getting everyone safely to Ballock, the finish for the 65Km Lite race.
But don't take our word for it, watch Riegs video on the conditions coming down the Dragons back and I am sure you will understand!!
