The Rhino Run is new a 2,750-kilometer self-supported bikepacking race. It starts in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa, and finishes in Windhoek, Namibia. There are no aid stations, route markings, backup vehicles, or support. Riders must complete the route via GPS tracking and may only get aid at the various shops and towns along the route. The route traverses some of the harshest landscapes in South Africa, including the Cederberg and the Tankwa Karoo. Once the riders hit Namibia, they cross the Namib Desert and along the D707, which is dubbed “Namibia’s Dream Road.”

“Don’t Look Back” follows the story of some of the riders from the inaugural Rhino Run. It is a story of grit, perseverance, and the resolve to never give up. You can watch the trailer below and rent or buy the full film through Vimeo.
