Toyota Fortuner Challenge returns – WIN the SUV of your dreams

The latest installment of the 2020 Toyota Fortuner Challenge is set to take place in the fourth quarter of 2020, in Johannesburg. As a test of physical fitness and mental sharpness, you’ll need to be at the top of your game in all respects to take home the grand prize – a brand new, 2020 Toyota Fortuner adventure vehicle.

Once again, you will be paired with a “Hero” contender to take on some of the fiercest fitness and driving challenges known to man. You’ll compete against three other challengers from competing media houses (and their hero partners) for the grand prize.

Specialized and Garmin will also be awarding runner-up prizes, so whether you walk away with a brand new adventure vehicle or not, there’s something up for grabs for all finalists.

Independent Media is looking for one athletic, quick-thinking, and agile candidate to participate in this year’s Fortuner Challenge event. If you think you have what it takes to represent our team, you can enter by clicking here to submit an entry as our challenger.

Independent Media will randomly select one person to send to the event later this year where you will be partnered with a legendary South African “Hero”.
