  • One Cold, Wet, and Wicked BendAR

    After a challenging 30-hours in the wilderness of Bend, Oregon, teams emerged from the bush a little stronger, a lot colder, but all accounted for. And while not all benders involve beer... for the competitors of the BendAR, thankfully this one did.

  • In Search of the Grail of Trail

    The Otter African Trail Run - presented by Salomon and GU Energy – this year once again unfolded along the breath-taking trails of the Garden Route National Park. Jacques Marais followed the approximately 200 off-road runners onto this gruelling trail to capture these images.

  • The Art of Stealth Camping

    Stealth camping, wild camping, off-grid camping, free camping, it all comes down to the same thing: you camp somewhere for free, sometimes with permission, sometimes without.

  • The END of Badassedry



    I am going to make a prediction: mud running, along with all those other fabulous '5K races' themed races out there, are fads. In 10 years time, maybe 20, they will be a thing of the past.

  • How to do a Self-Supported TransAmerica Run

    Unlike 5ks, marathons and even ultramarathons, there are not many people who have successful completed a TransAmerican run (252 individuals, according to USA Crossers) so one could not just buy a book and follow a pre-set training plan to prepare for a cross-country run.
