Runtheberg 2016

South Africa’s premier 2-day Stage Race in the heart of the majestic Northern Drakensberg.

Challenge: 15km per day – Single-track, some technical, some climbs and descents.
Extreme: 25km per day – Steep climbs and descents, technical single-track, challenging knee-breaker

The Drakensberg! Africa’s premier mountain range, UNESCO World Heritage Site, Geographical Wonder, international tourist attraction and South Africa’s prime outdoor adventure camping and hiking destination rolled into one. Stretching uninterrupted from the Western Cape to the Limpopo, these magical mountains have drawn brave minds, restless souls and hardy bodies in search of exercise, beauty and adventure for generations. Now it is time to raise the stakes, take off the gloves, shake off the fear and put on those trail shoes, as we bring one of the world’s newest and fastest growing adventure sports to one of the world’s most ancient and extreme environments with Runtheberg’s brand new Drakensberg Adventure Trails!

The Northern Berg, the heart of the country between the Highveld and the Indian Ocean, easily accessible to city-dwelling Gautengers starved for fresh air and outdoor adventure, beach-loving KZN-ers looking for some real elevation, and Free State farmers wanting to show off their toughness, is the perfect destination for staging what is fast becoming South Africa’s top 2-day, 2-stage trail running weekend. The format for the weekend will include 2 races – the intermediate Challenge Race at +-15km per day, and the tougher Extreme Race at +-25km per day.
