TWK Agri’s Wattle Combat

For the third consecutive year, TWK Agri’s Wattle Combat caused for great excitement and heaps of fun for all competitors.

This year’s TWK Agri’s Wattle Combat consisted again of a 4 – and a 10 km race of which the 4 km trail had six obstacles while the daredevils who took part in the 10 km course, had to overcome 13 tough obstacles.

Saturday, 3 November’s weather played a perfect part in the race as overcast and cloudy conditions earlier on, made the running, crawling and climbing a bit more bearable. A total of 220 entries were received of which the youngest participant in the 4 km race was only 4-years old.

The obstacles in this year’s race included a tyre run, mud leopard crawl, net climb, mud slide, rope climb, trenches, up-andunders, rope wall climb, tyre drag, log carry, swimming in the dam, plantation maze and a tiring jungle crawl.

While most of the participants only took part for the fun of it, some took it quite serious. Congratulations to the winners of the 2018 Wattle Combat Race – you surely outdid yourselves. Women’s winner – Vicky Hancock Men’s winner – Sabelo Sibeko.
