Non-Stop Wartrail Cocktail Recipe

Jess Crewdson and her father, Chris, participated in the 65km Skyrun, 130 km mountain bike, 65km canoe paddle Non-Stop Wartrail together on 22 and 23 March. This is Jess’s recipe for success.

Crewdson Non-Stop Wartrail 2015A classic twist from the original staged, three day event. Wartrail… but on steroids. No dossing. No comforts. Just non-stop epic-ness! Guaranteed to provide you with tons of war stories and blow your dinner guests’ minds at your next quaint cocktail party.

Prep time


You will need

  • 1x spoon of cement
  • some tissues
  • 2x legit seconds (preferably 1x mum for that extra bit of TLC plus 1x over-eager friend who is oblivious to the giant task ahead)
  • 1x running skoene, bike, and boat (don’t forget the buoyancy!)
  • 1x sense of humour (preferably one that never falters)


  1. Take a stunning, jaw-dropping, ma-jess-tic, 60km Skyrun along the Witteberge mountain range from Lady Grey to Balloch.
  2. Blend up with a gnarly 130km MTB leg.
  3. Note: Leg must consist of at least one mother of a hike-a-bike, a ton of uphills, and preferably little to no downhills. If you are feeling really brave, add a pinch of some railway track (the extra bumpy, slippery sort) just in case your butt cheeks have not been adequately tenderised in the prior 100km. For a naughty twist, chuck in some PVC piping on a single track section (at night) to dismount 1x Ugene Nel at pace.
  4. Once blended, add some fatigue and finish up with a 60km paddle down the mighty Orange River. Make sure it’s in flood.
  5. Serve ice-cold, on the rocks, with some thunderstorms and hail to give it that final bite.

All in all, one for the books! Highly recommended.
