meet the brains behind the madness

The team

Super serious about having fun in the most organized way possible. Our team boasts ample event experience and industry knowledge.

Gavin Kearns - Event Director

He is referred to as “The man with a plan” even when the plan goes out the window. You will find Gavin cruising every route on bike making sure the 1st batch opens the route for the rest of the runners. Gavin has been in the event industry for over 20 years as both a competitor and organiser.

Brad Grobbler - Route Director

If there is a man out there who knows a thing or two about races and routes. It’s B-Rad. He claims to have run more comrades than there have actually been. 

Kyle Thorpe - Sponsorships & Activations

His name is Kyle, but he says you can call him anytime. Kyle makes us look pretty and handles event partners, activations and sponsorships. Kyle also heads up Infinitive Marketing Solutions.

Themba Behrens - The Voice

Themba is a legendary MC, voice over artist, comedian, part time TV star and all round nice guy. We could not think of a better person to hype you up ahead of the challenge.

Jolene Banha - Event Compliance & Logistics

When the ideas are as crazy as ours, you need a dynamic safety and logistics team. Jolene is nothing short of amazing at making things happen. Don’t judge a woman by her bossy safety boots.

Bongani Zerer - Lead Course Builder

The man and the legend, Bongani heads up an incredible team of course builders. Urban landscapes often never sleep, making them particularly hard to setup in. Nothing is ever too challenging for Bongi.
