Some great news!!
I can confirm that the first 3 men and first 3 women at the SA Ultra Trail Champs at the Addo Elephant Trail Race will be chosen to represent South Africa at the IAU World Trail Championships in Wales on 6/7 July 2013. We will also enter the team competition at the World Champs with this team.
Although the points system will be implemented in 2013 it will only be used in 2014 (we need a 12-month period), so therefore wild-card positions will not be available at this event. This is the only event we will be using for team selection in the Ultra category.
Please enter early – as with most Trail Races – there are only 300 entries available. Closing date is February 1, 2013.
The SA Ultra Champs for 2013 will unfortunately not have any age categories for various reasons:
1. The race itself don’t have any;
2. There are no age categories for this specific category (Ultra) at the World Champs
3. We are in talks with the SA Masters Association to see if they could possibly come on board and take responsibility for this aspect.
As always: please keep the questions coming.
