The dust has finally settled on another Elephant Charge and what a spectacular one it was!

This year our teams raised $63,433 for causes that support conservation through education in Zambia. With the threat to our country’s wildlife unrelenting, this money will provide valuable assistance to organisations on the conservation front line and those teaching the next generation about the importance of preserving Zambia’s natural heritage.

In total, 18 teams took part this year, with only seven of the starters completing all 10 checkpoints in the allocated time. The challenging course was set amid the rolling hills that straddle the Chongwe River, meaning there were plenty of steep inclines, rocks and, of course, water. Tough, but, by all accounts, enjoyable. You can find a full list of winners below.

 
The commitee would like to thank all those who helped make EC2016 so successful. Our teams, without whom we couldn’t raise so much money for conservation, our sponsors, who enable us to put on the event, and everyone else who helps out in some way. You know who you are.

Next year will be Elephant Charge’s 10th anniversary. We can’t quite believe it! We will be pulling out all the stops to mark this milestone and really hope you’ll join us – either as a returning competitor, helper or spectator, or for the first time – to make 2017 the most successful charge yet.

Finally, we will be holding an EC2016 Review Night at Sugarbush Cafe on Wednesday 16th November from 6.30pm where we will premiere the official video and pics of this year’s Charge and hear a bit about how the funds are put to use. Please do come along and join in this fun, low key evening.

If you want to see some of the action from EC2016, have a look at our Facebook page, which is being updated regularly with pics and videos.

Tracks for this year’s charge are now up on our website www.elephantcharge.org
