Cape Town, South Africa is the gateway to Table Mountain and the massively diverse land that surrounds it. Our Trek is rated as challenging! Think boulders, running water, streams, indigenous shaded forest, fresh smells and a lot of green. This will be the steepest and most challenging iConquer Trail Team Diabetes has ever experienced. You'll put your training and boots to the test on our daylong hike. You'll challenge your core strength on Summit Day. No tram will take you to where we are going! Use your strength, endurance and determination to complete your journey to the top!

It brings together world runners from elite athletes to wheelchair racers, as well as social and first-time runners, for an exceptional, world-class running event experience. It is the only AIMS gold label marathon in Africa. Full Marathon, Trail Runs, 5k run & 10k walk/run.

Team Diabetes Ambassadors
This Team Diabetes "Create Your Own Adventure" is hosted by two Team Diabetes members, Elaine Frost and Cindy Hamilton. As ambassadors, they can answer your questions about Team Diabetes and their participation in this adventure. For Elaine, this will be her 7th hiking adventure with Team D and iConquer. She knows us all very well and can share what her adventure experiences with us have been like. Cindy is relatively new to Team Diabetes. She is a highly driven runner who has a compelling personal connection to Team D. She is contributing her passion and commitment to running and healthy living and using them to help us share this world-class event with Team D Alumni and new runners alike!
With a new-found friendship formed at the Edinburgh Adventure, together they make the perfect Ambassadors to help us carry the name, brand and professionalism associated with Team Diabetes and iConquer forward!
Both of them will be on-site to share in this amazing experience with YOU and all of Team Diabetes.

Elaine and Cindy are volunteer ambassadors to iConquer. They communicate with us regularly about the adventure and receive occasional updates from us. They are not compensated endorsers of this adventure, they are participants. They are not involved in the business of this adventure in anyway. They are only able to answer general questions about hiking or running or Team Diabetes. As ambassadors though we have planned for them to be on-site for the adventure, they won't be there in any official capacity other than as Team Diabetes member hiker and runner. Please do not make any of your plans around their attendance.
This is Team Diabetes on a MISSION!
