Expedition Africa 2020 Lesotho - 9 to 19 April 2020 The planning and preparation for the 10th Edition of Expedition Africa 2020 in Lesotho, “Kingdom in the Sky”, is well underway. Conversations around the course, entries and location have already started, whilst the route scouting, land permissions and government meetings have been mostly completed. In less than 5 months teams will be lining up at the start line for an expedition race that is unparalleled in landscape contrasts and cultural diversity. 46 teams have already entered, consisting of 21 International teams and 25 South African teams. A unique aspect is the range in ages of this contestants, with the youngest team member at just 15 years old whereas the oldest is 60 years old. There are also two family teams that have entered. One team consists of parents, son and daughter and the other is a father and his three sons. The variety, vastness and location of this adventure race has attracted a good balance of the regular participants as well as some new teams. Some of the most experienced adventure racers currently on the ARWS circuit have signed up for what promises to be a challenging course.
