Trail du Mont Rochelle

Literally on the edge of the French Corner awaits a trail experience second to none!

Packed with lung-bursting climbs, glorious open single track, breathtaking descends with equally breathtaking views over valleys that once were the roaming grounds of the majestic elephant! Trail Du Mont Rochelle, a truly magical trail experience, awaits a limited field of runners on Sunday, 30 August 2015.
As if the inaugural Trail du Mont Rochelle event wasn't spectacular enough, the organisers have made the 2015 event even more so!

They have added a distance of 5km to all races and with that distance comes, yes you guessed it, more Vert! Inside the Mont Rochelle Nature Reserve, you still have the amazing trails and routes from last year. The only difference in 2015 is the brand new addition of the Winelands Trail allowing you to start and finish in the beautiful Franschhoek.

They've also added a new race to the event and takes place on Saturday 29 August. We know how you love running uphill so we've added a bit of hurt just for you ;)

Skip the bus ride and run into the reserve!
