IMPI is the biggest social, fun but challenging event on the calendar. It’s colourful, inclusive of all sizes and shapes, and gives families and friends the opportunity to come out together for an amazing day.
The Challenge and Dash route differ only in distance, but contain the same level of obstacles – hard but do-able.
Challenge your friends and conquer your fears and have the time of your life.
Choose between the Saturday and Sunday of the event weekend.
IMPI’s are set off within their booked time slot at 15 minute intervals.
Once you’ve registered make your way to the start.
If you want to enter the Competitive Category – please ensure you enter the Competitive time slot.
Competitive Challenge and Competitive Dash
For the first time, Impi is introducing a Competitive Challenge and Competitive Dash time slot (for all the A-type personalities). The first male and female over the finish line from each competitive time slot will be the winner. The Winners for each competitive slot will receive R1 000 prize money.
IF YOU HAVE A LiveTime TIMING BAND, you do not need to register before going to the start line at your start time.
Only queue to start within your start time and not before. The band will show that you are/are not in the correct time slot.
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A LiveTime TIMING BAND you need to register for the event before going to the IMPI start line
You need a LiveTime silicone wrist band timing device – if you do not have one you will need to purchase one on the day for R50. Register 30 minutes before your start time block
Any changes need to be made at the registration/info desk before going to the start line.
Level of fitness
Participants need to be able to at least walk the indicated course distance comfortably without compromising their health.
Obstacles include swimming and climbing, so participants need to be prepared to exert themselves.
This includes climbing through, over and under natural and man-made structures, wading through mud and covering a trail course.
Comfortable clothing and shoes that can get dirty.
Avoid cotton which soakes up water and mud and weighs you down.
What about the dirt?
