Who are we?

Thanks for taking the time to read up about us!

The Pennypinchers AR team are a group of outdoor enthusiasts who live in the Garden Route area.

Members come from Sedgefield in the west to Storms River in the east and we regularly get together to enjoy a run, ride or paddle in the adventure capital of South Africa!

One of our proudest moments was being able to finish the Bull of Africa, a 570 km expedition race in 2008. However, each race has it's highlights and challenges and so we keep coming back for more!

We have a large squad of athletes and when we can, we enter them all, in 2008 there were 3 Pennypinchers Teams racing in the Eden Duo, with our all ladies team scooping up the first prize in the ladies competition and our mixed team winning the mixed competition on a technicality - Martin and Jeannie raced in the men's / open category!

We are also involved at a grass-roots level and invest a lot of time in the Montessori AR Squad. These kids have shown great potential and we look forward to the day when they will race against us in the open category and hopefully give us a run for our money!

We hope you enjoy our blog, we hope to share some of our adventures with you in this way!
