The incredible Sani Stagger

The road of sweat and tears

In the foothills of the Southern Drakensberg, outside the tiny towns of Underberg and Himeville – is the road that leads runners to the famous Sani Pass. The Sani Pass – which was once a bridal path used to carry goods from South Africa up into Lesotho on the back of donkeys – is the steep and gravel road that athletes use for the Sani Stagger.

The course runs 21.1km up Sani Pass to the Lesotho border post, and then 21.1km back down the pass into South Africa.
