The Salt Pans Ultra Marathon Team
Dale ter Haar
I am a runner since I remember. But my passion for ultra distance started in Botswana. It’s not only the very special and beautiful environment what made me running long distances. The amazing local distance runner community made me love this sport and they are still my inspiration. Beside running i manage a creative media agency and a local events platform to promote art and culture, music and sport in Botswana.
Sporting interests: Long distance running doesn’t provides a lot of time for other sports. Rock climbing and wind surfing when ever their is an opportunity.
Ultra Event Running Experience – Every year the legendary Comrades in South Africa. Toughest challenge ever – Chairman’s Challenge. A 400 km run in 6 days to raise awareness for diabetes and cancer in Botswana.
I am the ambassador of the Salt Pans Ultra Marathon, located in Heidelberg, Germany.
During my two years living and working in Botswana, I fell in love with this beautiful country, its people and its vast natural variety, especially the surrealistic salt pants. In this country I also rediscovered my love for running.
One of my first marathons was the Gaborone marathon. Ever since I completed several serious long-distance Trail Runs, among them the UMTB, the Montreux Ultra Trail 100 miler, 80k Addo Elephant Trail, several 100+k Ultra Trails (Zugspitz Ultra, Orobie Ultra, Swiss Trail, …)
I am very proud to represent the Salt Pans Ultra Marathon in Germany and looking forward for fantastic stories to be told from all the brave runners who participate in this top-notch Botswana ultra-distance race.
