Virgin Active Warrior #4 | Die Bosveld, Pretoria | 28 Oct 2023
Warriors, brace for battle.
What does it take to be a Warrior? Show up on Saturday, and you will learn that a Warrior steps out of their comfort zone. A Warrior faces obstacles and fears head-on. A Warrior perseveres and never gives up. And a Warrior never leaves a soldier behind. And most importantly, you will find that you are stronger and braver than you think…
