Both know the value of a sound strategy and the importance of staying its course. They face decisions with conviction. They know when to be bold and when to be cautious. This is why Sanlam has chosen to sponsor Team Painted Wolf in the Adventure Racing World Championships 2016.

The wolves

Team Sanlam Painted Wolf is an elite South African Expedition Racing Team
aiming for a podium finish at the Adventure Racing Wolrd Championships
while at the same time raising awareness and funds needed to protect South African Painted Wolves.

“Adventure is a commitment made by the entire being, and can search our depths to bring out the best, most human qualities which remain in us. When the pack of cards has not been rigged so we win every time, then the game is real, and we find surprise, imagination, enthusiasm to succeed and the possibility of failure.”

-WALTER BONATTI, 1930

“Imagine doing the Comrades Marathon, the Cape Argus and the Duzi Canoe Marathon all back to back, 3 times over without rest and doing them all off road through some of the most inhospitable terrains imaginable. That is a bit of what Expedition Racing is like.”

“Shallow men believe in luck or in circumstance. Strong men believe in cause and effect.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
