Rhino Peak Challenge fundraiser – shout out to donate towards this important initiative

Treverton College entered the Rhino Peak Challenge last year as the first school team to do so. Kai Broom, Travers Pellew and Jarred van Alphen, represented Treverton well, in raising money as well as coming in the Top 5 runners in the Challenge. This year they have entered again as a team and have challenged other schools to as well. So far Grace College and Maritzburg College have accepted and signed up. They will be running on 9 September 2023. Please donate towards this cause that is actively seeking to conserve our natural heritage.…”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.”For further information please visit
