ABOUT RECCE RACE
© Copyright 2017 - 2019 CROC (Pty) Ltd
The Recce Races take place in the Highlands area of Mpumalanga in South Africa, a very hostile region with hardly a flat section. Events start and finish at Fort Mission in Dullstroom on the edge of the Eastern escarpment .
The Recce is fully endorsed and supported by the South African Special Forces Association (SASFA), known as the Recces.
Expect a military themed race village, the ominous thudder of military chopper blades, ex-Recce operators acting as marshals and earn a well-deserved dogtag medal.
River crossings, darkness and tiredness on energy sapping ascents and treacherous descents, as well as ‘hostile’ activities or ‘no-go’ zones along the routes will add to the adventure but may compromise or delay progress to the target zone, and back to the Recce Base.
Final route options will depend on:
The Recce is an epic adventure that will take you to the boundaries of physical and mental toughness while enjoying the wonders of nature and life.
The Recce has a strong Special Forces flavour. It is presented and supported by the legendary Recces during an ambush moon – mountain bikers and trail runners will experience a full moon making it ideal for a surprise ambush.
The Recce Races pass through iconic and unique landscapes, including the Eastern Escarpment, Helvetia, Lakenvlei and other forests, Verloren Vallei wetlands – an international RAMSAR site, the Steenkampsberg and De Berg – which is the highest point in the northern part of the country, natural forests and plantations, idyllic and remote valleys, gorges, waterfalls and more.
