Desert Dash Annoucement

1 August 2015

I am pleased to announce that the 2015 Nedbank Desert Dash is scheduled for Friday the 11th December 2015. Having concluded a 5 year consultation agreement I have handed over the organizational management to Nedbank, as the title sponsor of the event, and their contracted events management company. All systems are in ‘GO’ position!

We anticipate providing you all with further details regarding the Nedbank Desert Dash event and registrations on Wednesday 5th August 2015. Please visit our website and Facebook page on the 5th of August for the necessary details.

This arrangement allows me the privilege of parallel involvement while witnessing the Desert Dash grow to public expectations.

With both my business and personal time being heavily taxed by the event, I must acknowledge that there are greater opportunities for those with newer visions and inspirations for events such as the Desert Dash. In the planning stages of the 2005 event, few believed that the event would grow to such popularity. I too, watched in disbelief each year as riders registered, rode and completed the ‘Dash’.

My sincerest thanks go to team FNB Namibia, who through their valued and honoured involvement, formed an integral pillar in the history of this event as it grew over the last decade.

I look forward to seeing you all on Friday 11th December.
