The 2018 Rhino Peak Challenge sees ten of South Africa's top trail runners and some of the country's leading conservationists and adventure enthusiasts rallying together to summit the iconic Rhino Peak in the Southern Region of the Maloti Drakensberg World Heritage Site.

As part of World Rhino Day celebrations on Saturday 22 September, the small group will look to raise awareness of the plight of rhinos globally as well as local Rhino Peak inhabitant and fellow endangered species, the Bearded Vulture.

While participation in the event is limited to ten elite athletes, 12 influential people and five people from the Rhino Africa Team. Corporates and the general public alike can get involved in the event by pledging an amount towards an individual competitor's efforts.

2016 saw the event raise nearly R320 000 and 2017 raised R303 000 for various projects which include the Rhino Conservation Project and the Maloti Drakensberg Vulture Project.

The group of elite athletes and people of influence is an exciting mixed bag of elite runners like Rory Scheffer and Naomi Brand along with people of influence like international rugby referee Stuart Berry, renowned adventurer Sibusiso Vilane, KAP sani2c founder Glen Haw and current Mrs South Africa Nicole Capper.
