MountCo Challenges



Running and maintaining our fitness in winter is a seriously tough challenge! Add the current weather in the Garden Route and it feels nearly impossible! 
Let's join Altra this chilly season and keep fit and healthy!
You stand a chance of winning some great lucky draw prizes based on the number of kilometers and meters of elevation that you run or hike during the month of July 2023. 
Here is a brief summary of how you can earn lucky draw entries:
You will be rewarded with lucky draw entries based on your total km's run for the month within the Garden Route area. 1 point per 50km's done (Rounding will be downwards based on 50km intervals)
The same points will apply for every 500 meters of elevation done in total for the month. 
Here is an example: If you ran 100km with 1500m elevation, you will receive 2 points for your distance run and 3 points for your elevation. Thus you will have 5 lucky draw entries 😊

Prizes include: 

  • 2 x Lone Peak 7 trail running shoes to the value of R7 998 ||Women's x 1 ; Men's x1||  
  • Altra Buffs
  • Altra T-shirts
  • 4 x MountCo R250 vouchers
