The HUSQVARNA RunChimanimani TT

Nestled within the breathtaking landscape of the Chimanimani Transfrontier Conservation Area, an extraordinary event awaits trail running enthusiasts and adventurers alike. Set to take place over three days from April 26th to 28th, the HUSQVARNA RunChimanimani TT (Transfrontier Traverse) promises an unforgettable ultra-marathon experience, showcasing the unparalleled beauty and rugged terrain of this majestic region.

The HUSQVARNA RunChimanimani TT is not just your average ultra-marathon; it’s a test of endurance, teamwork, and the spirit of adventure. Participants will embark on a 60-kilometer journey, tackling challenging trails and conquering awe-inspiring landscapes alongside a partner. Each day presents a new leg of the race, with competitors accumulating their times over the three-day period.

What sets this event apart is its unique format, requiring pairs of runners to navigate the course together, checking in at checkpoints and crossing the Start/Finish line as a team. Divided into three categories – Men’s Pairs, Ladies’ Pairs, and Mixed Pairs – the race fosters camaraderie and friendly competition among participants. It’s also a celebration of the stunning natural surroundings and the vibrant local community. As participants traverse the rugged trails, they’ll be treated to panoramic views of the Chimanimani Mountains, lush forests, and cascading waterfalls that define this picturesque landscape.

The event hub, located at the charming Outward Bound Zimbabwe property, provides a perfect base for runners to recharge and unwind between stages. Surrounded by nature’s tranquility, participants can enjoy select meals and drinks while mingling with fellow athletes. Additionally, a range of activities, including group stretching sessions, sports massages, and nutrition talks, are available to enhance the overall experience and ensure participants are primed for peak performance.

But the excitement doesn’t end with the race itself. Friends and family are invited to join in on the fun by participating in a one-day fun run alongside the teams. This inclusion allows for a truly immersive family experience, making the event accessible to all ages and fitness levels.
