Alex, Brian and Stijn set Magalies FKT

Adventure racers Alex Pope, Brian Gardner and Stijn Laenen set a Fastest Known Time (FKT) for a 76-kilometre route across the Magaliesberg: now known as the Magalies Traverse. The route starts at the Hartebeespoort Dam wall and ends at the Olifantsnek Dam wall. They completed the distance in 15 hours 29 minutes on Saturday, 17 September 2016.


After completing this challenge, Alex dropped us a note saying:

We remarked on the route the we all had AR Mini Gaiters on. They worked really well for us – keeping dust and debris out. Very cool 🙂

Three cheers for AR Mini Gaiters!


These three guys are tough and experienced adventure racers and trail runners. The terrain up there is rough and unforgiving with very little trail.

Well done guys. Here they are pictured at the finish. Now we need to get them into crazy-colour AR Gaiters.
