Eveready Powers the Addo Elephant Trail Run 100 Milers

Date : 26 February 2016

The very popular, annual Addo Elephant Trail Runs are taking place this weekend from today until Sunday (26thFebruary – 28th February). This daring and scenic trail run takes you on challenging and fun routes around the reserve which is home to South Africa’s "Big 7”.


Dubbed an ultra-trail run, the races consist of multiple river crossings and climbing; and runners are rewarded along the way with spectacular views. Runners are given the option to enter the 44km and the 76km runs. For the more advanced and more open-to-challenges athletes, they also have the 100 mile run (161km)!


This year, 39 athletes entered the 100 mile event. As this is a two day race, Eveready was approached to sponsor some batteries to these athletes for their headlamps for when they’re running in the dark.


Eveready was happy to sponsor 39 sets each of AAA and AA batteries to this event so that they can have long-lasting headlamps when running the challenging trail at night.


The 100 mile race kicks off at 14:00 today and there is a prize giving for the participants on Sunday at 10:00.


The 76km and 44km runs begin at 05:30 and 06:30 on Saturday respectively. There will also be a prize giving for the 44km runners at 13:00 on Saturday; and another one for the 76km runners at 16:00 on Saturday.
