Stellenbosch Farm Race
The Stellenbosch Farm Race is run entirely on the roads of five picturesque wine estates on the outskirts of Stellenbosch. The race starts and finishes on the Beau Joubert Wine Estate. The route meanders through vineyards and indigenous forests of neighbouring farms Karibib, Skoonheid, Stirling and Jordan Wine Estate. At the top of the hill is an old signal canon dating back to the 1600’s. The first male and female athlete passing the canon will be crowned King and Queen of the Hill. The undulating course rewards runners with a 360° view of the Cape Peninsula. On a clear day Rooi Els, Cape Point, Somerset West, Stellenbosch and Table Mountain are all visible.
