Double Dirt Run Series

Double Dirt Run Event #1

Conservation at Work Event


The Western Cape is an area of global conservation significance with exceptionally high species diversity.  Most areas of high conservation value lie in the hands of private landowners.   Many of these landowners join conservancies to collectively take on conservation projects and to help ensure preservation of our biodiversity for future generations. Conservation at Work is a non-profit association that represents all Conservancies in the Western Cape and provides assistance and representation to these conservation minded landowners.  The Double Dirt Run series aims to give contestants the opportunity to experience the beauty of some of these conservation areas.  All funds raised through these events will go towards on-going conservation initiatives in these areas.

Please Note:

The Schapenberg is a conservation area, and we would like to ask runners to please stick to the paths and ensure that all trash is carried with you or thrown into the allocated bins.
