Namibia Crossing

Floods and border closures force TNC to remain in SA in 2022

The bi-annual 5 day, 200km Namibia Crossing wilderness running race from South Africa to Namibia will, as a result of border closures and flood damage, be contained within South Africa’s Richtersveld National Park in 2022.

Namibia Crossing 2021 Postponed to 2022

It will probably come as no surprise that given the current havoc & uncertainty that COVID-19 continues to wreak, both in South Africa and around the world, the bi-annual Namibia Crossing that was set to take place in June this year, is being postponed to June 2022.
Uniquely, this 5 day, 200km wilderness running race through the oldest and most biologically rich mountain desert in the world, traverses over an official land border between South Africa and Namibia.
