Mountain Runner Events was formed by two good friends out of the passion for an active and healthy lifestyle and many years of experience competing at top level in various sports disciplines. They put together quality events, inviting like-minded people and new adventure seekers to embrace and enjoy the camaraderie of races and the magnificent South African outdoors.


Tatum Prins is surrounded by cheerful exclamation marks and known as the face and voice of the company, welcoming every runner as a new friend. Well respected for her adventure racing accomplishments, she is a Merrell sponsored multi-sport athlete and formidable SUP boarder.

“Outside and Alive”

Graham “Tweet” Bird is that ‘grumpy guy over there.’ Naturally bossy and obsessively organised he makes for a perfect event manager and race director and knows every step of every route that you will run. As well as being an encyclopaedia of trails and mountains in our country he is the captain of the premier South African adventure racing team, Merrell Adventure Addicts, competing in multi-discipline expedition races here and around the world.

They know that the first step to a 700km expedition race is a 5km fun run and are always encouraging people to jump start their spirit and live life on purpose.
