My name is Delphinus Sauer, I am 17 years of age. I am an avid trail runner, I love running and outdoor adventure. I started running years back in primary school but only got serious in the last two years or so. I have competed in a few stage races, the last 2 years Drakensberg Sani Rock Jumper 15km/12km Events and this year January GWK rivers run 25km/15km. I won the 2018 Rock jumper and placed Third in the recent GWK event. I regularly run shorter KZN trail events with podium results. I hope at some point to pick up one or two gear and/or nutrition sponsors in the field. In time building up to 100 mile events both in SA and abroad.

I am a grade 12 student at a Roseway Waldorf School and in this year we put together a dissertation/project of our choice. Initially a look into the bio-chemical and psychological facets behind endurance appealed to me, as a choice for this project.

In grade 11 I was given a chance to spend two weeks at Etembeni school for the physically disabled and visually impaired. While I was there I came to realize how lucky I was, I wasn't disabled for a start and on top of that I came from a well off background. The children I met there were so incredible, they didn't let the disability get them down, remaining full of enthusiasm and life.

So the result has become a mix of these two drivers.

Pushing my own boundaries, I will be running my first trail “marathon”, the Drakensberg Northern Trail 40 DNT40 on the 23 of March. After this event, which I plan to use as a warm up, I will participate in the 38km Mnweni Marathon in the Drakensberg. This is a self navigation and self supported event crossing the Lesotho border over it’s course. Marathons will be a new experience for me and I know I will enjoy running them. Afterwards I plan on dropping back to the lower distances and concentrating on results.

At Etembeni, where many of these children can't afford wheelchairs of their own, I have liaised with various parties to hold a charity event that we can buy these children some wheelchairs that will uplift their lives, empowering them further as young aspiring people.

As such, I hope to gather as much support for as possible, thanks for your participation.
