VOET VAN AFRIKA 2017 & MTB Race and Trail Run

The VOET will be run for the 39th time this year, in 2017, and the original VOET route is back!
This is not the easiest marathon as it contains quite a few hills, but it is a beautiful marathon, and being run almost at the tip of Africa, it’s one that every runner has to tick off their running bucket list. Warm up by running the TOONTJIE 4km Fun Run on the evening before the big race.
Description: The 42.2km follows a point-to-point route, starting just outside of Bredasdorp on a farm and finishing at the Bredasdorp Sport Grounds. A very challenging route with lots of ups and downs in the mountains, on dirt and tarred roads.
First 1000 finishers in each race receive medals and there will be great category prizes.
Starting times and places: 13 Oct: Sport Grounds, Bredasdorp; 4km Toontjie Fun Run: 6pm; 14 Oct: Elim Road (approximately 9.5km from town); 42.2km: 6am; Grashoek Farm Elim Road; 21.1km: 7:30am; Bredasdorp Police Station 10km: 7am.
