Meet the Team:
Always searching for a crazy new location in which to brew his favourite coffee! The Drakensberg is Frederik’s second home and on Tuesdays you can find him at Wolwespruit, running the time trial!
Probably best known as a professional long-distance and ultra trail runner in South Africa, but with a history in triathlon and mountain biking as well. A lover of wild flowers and nature, trail and ultra running coaching, and a veterinarian in her spare time!
An avid ultra-runner, an absolute Drakensberg fanatic and a knowledgeable adventure guide… A mountain-lover at heart, there’s nothing Pierre enjoys more than moving at altitude for extended periods of time. The longer and tougher a mountain mission becomes, the more in his element he is!
Let’s start off by saying that this guy takes the Nike slogan “Just Do It” way too seriously! Pieter is the ”Yes-Man” who is always on the lookout for his next adventure… A fan of African coffees, Pieter loves the juicy mouthfeel that these grinds typically provide. And, fun fact – on meeting Pieter you may be surprised by the unique qualities of his hair. It is fair to say that he might just be the blondest guy you’ll ever meet!
