Grand Total Raised: ZAR

About Rhino Peak Challenge

In order to complete the RPC the Ambassadors must each complete the 21km course to the summit of the Rhino Peak (3056m) and back. There is no time limit and Ambassadors may walk or run the RPC. Over the years a number of South Africa’s finest Trail Runners have taken part in the RPC and the current Fastest Known Times (FKT) for the RPC is 2hr15min for the men and 2hr45min for the ladies set by Kane Reilly and Holly Page respectively. However, most Ambassadors adopt a far more leisurely pace with times ranging between 4 and 9 hours to complete the Challenge.

The real focus of the RPC is of course the fundraising, and each Ambassador spends most of their energy on this. A Profile with a payment link is set up on the website for each Ambassador and donors can then choose which Ambassador they would like to support. The Ambassadors reach out to their personal networks for donations and the Event itself also does all it can to raise funds on behalf of the Ambassadors. This formula has proved extremely successful since 2016 with almost R5.2m raised.
