DISTANCES:                        A 7km loop and a 14.5km route for those seeking more of a challenge

ROUTE DESCRIPTION:    The short distances are designed to encourage newcomers, family and friends to participate and the longer distances has great flowing singletrack with a reward of magnificent wineland views and Table Mountain in the distance.

 

5km route – Jeeptrack at the bottom of the farm and it circles amongst the vineyards. Walkers welcome and easy enough for trail run novices. No timing, medal or waterpoint.

7.5km loop – This green route has jeep track and three fun singletrack sections.  One refreshment station about half way at Pepper Tree, is also the start of the downhill just below Klapmutskoppie.

12.5km route – This blue route will give you more of a work-out and climbs on jeep track amongst the vineyards towards Klapmutskop. About 8km of singletrack, and it meets the last part of the green route just before the refreshment station.

15km route – the same as the 12.5km with an extra 3km singletrack section to the top of the Koppie that is rocky and steep - for fit runners only! A self-help watercan about halfway and a refreshment station about 4km from the finish. We suggest runners take their own water too.
