Standard Bank Namibia will be hosting this year’s Winter X-trail series in the mountains of Khomas Hochland this coming Sunday.

These series are the ideal opportunity to walk or run while taking fresh air, public relations and communications manager Surihe Gaomas-Guchu said. 

“The coveted annual event will take place at Farm Godies situated some 70 km west of Windhoek. The series have become a key feature in the rising sport of running amidst the growing trend of lifestyle sports locally. As a financial institution we understand the importance sports plays in the physical well-being of those taking part and at the same time brings communities together,” she said. 

She stressed that physical activity also plays a vital role in sustaining good mental health and the bank is therefore proud to be sponsoring the event once again. 

The trail encompasses winding rigged riverbeds, steep climbs and stunning gorges offering and exceptional variety of terrain and scenery, Gaomas-Guchu explained. 

“Each challenge tests the mental resolve and physical endurance of participants while promising an enriching achievement at the finish line, the trail allows participants the option to choose between 7 Km or 16Km trails, while they can compete in team of two or three people. And they can choose to run or walk the routes which have stunning views,” she said. 

She added that this is the third year that the series is taking place and this year runners have an additional race to look forward to with the Windhoek Light Midgard x- trail slated for August.
