afb SOX Trail Run 2016

Taking place from 6 to 8 August 2016, this three-day event can be likened to VIP access to some of the most pristine and isolated locations you can experience on our continent. Besides the fact it takes place in the countries top tourist destination it also showcases the complete variety the Garden Route in the Southern Cape has offer. The journey will take you through the mountains, forest and coastal terrains respectively.
Day one escorts you through 30 kilometres of unspoiled mountain single track in the Outeniqua Mountains with amazing views of the surrounding forest and distant ocean.
Day two, the forest section, having an elevation gain of 1147 metres is not a flat by any stretch of the imagination with its circular route taking you through the Goudveld and Millwood State Forest.
The final day, and favourite with many of the returning runners, is the coastal section of just under 25 kilometres.
Starting from just inland of Victoria Bay runners go along the famous Outeniqua Choo Tjoe train route, a spectacular beach section in Wilderness and then inland for a final section of indigenous forest to finish at the SANParks Ebb and Flow camp.
