Run free along miles of empty beaches
and undulating hills, following the paths of sure-footed cattle and fisherman
as your trail. On the 3 day
Jikeleza Jog from Kob Inn to Cintsa, competitors will cover 80kms of wild running terrain; an experience
no runner should have to miss.
Held over a full moon weekend from
the 17 – 21
October 2013, runners can take advantage of
hard-pack beaches, lower chances of rain and comfortable daily temperatures.
This year’s event is a limited-entry social ‘tour’ so there will be no
timing, no prizes, or major sponsors; but the opportunity to traverse this
stunning section of coastline with the camaraderie of like minded adventurers,
and have all your back-up logistics taken care.
The tour is aimed at novice to intermediate trail runners. Each trail
day would normally be two average hike days, so ‘fast walkers’ could manage the
days, but if you wanted to get to the next hotel in time for lunch and an
afternoon siesta, you best keep your running shoes on.
The route is unmarked and unmanned, but basic maps are provided and
keeping the sea on your left will guide you to the finish each day. For safety
and social reasons we prefer you enter as a team, but we will be accepting
individual participants this year.
At the end of each day, you will overnight at the friendly Wild Coast
hotels with tasty grub, hot showers and cold beers to look forward to.
Embrace the magic of the full moon
and come run wild on this year’s Jikeleza Jog!
