The Put Foot Rally bills itself as the "the greatest social rally on the face of the earth”, promising 7 countries, 7 checkpoints, 7 parties and 7000 km in 17 days.
Quite a challenge, you think? You choose your wheels (which currently range from a Toyota Corolla to a classic Range Rover), name your team and make your way through the checkpoints, which include the Fish River Canyon, Victoria Falls, Etosha, Caprivi Strip, Kariba Dam and Vilankulos. This all in aid of charity and the 2012 beneficiaries are both the Put Foot Foundation and Project Rhino.
Following the inaugural 2011 event, minor changes have been effected to make it that much more brilliant. As if it needed to be, the 2012 entries sold out in just 28 minutes! Expectations are that this event will grow from strength to strength and will become a unique sub-Saharan event with no rival.
The Put-Foot Rally is taking on the boys that claim that you can’t see Africa in anything other than a giant 4×4, kitted out to the nines in expensive equipment that will never see the light of day.
The 2012 Put Foot kicks off on the 20th June. For more Info visit the website or follow @put_foot_rally on twitter. Many of the entrants have their own blogs and twitter handles that can be accessed from here too.
