The large amount of jeep track allows for riders to ride two abreast rather than behind each other with helps facilitate conversations during the stages, even for race snakes like Sarah Hill and Gavin Salt. Photo Oakpics.com.

Save the date for the 2018 Glacier Storms River Traverse which is set to take place from the 9th to the 12th of August 2018. Entries to next year’s event open on the 19th of September for past participants and Glacier by Sanlam invited guests while general entries open on the 26th of September 2017. As in previous years the limited accommodation available in Storms River Village is expected to sell out fast so Dryland Event Management strongly suggests booking accommodation before the event entries even open.
