On the 17th of October one of the most remarkable feats in South African sporting history took place in the Tsitsikamma Section of the Garden Route National Park. Swiss runner Marc Lauenstein challenged the Otter African Trail Run’s unthinkable four hour barrier.

Being capable is one thing, doing it is another thing all together.
Even South Africa’s best trail runners who know every meter of the Otter and have measured themselves up against the best of the best internationally were absolutely stunned by Marc’s run.
I – myself bet R100 000 on it not being possible. In “The Unthinkable,” to be aired on
