Route Description

15km Trail run:

This beautiful run is both for the fit and adventure seeking.

Within the first 2 km you can expect to come across a few Blesbok and Zebra as you make your way through a private game reserve as you climb the initial ascent. You will have to do a little bit of bundu bashing and might endure wet feet, but this is not in vain as from there it is mostly smooth orchard trails with views of the Theewaterskloof dam and mountains. The last 2km takes runners to the shores of the dam onto hard packed sand and rocky patches to the finish.

There will be one waterpoint on this route.

7.5km Trail run:

The shorter route initially follows the 15km route but turns off to take you on a more direct route to the dam with smooth orchard trails and beautiful views to the finish on the Theewaterskloof dam’s shore.
