Tygerberg Full Moon 5km Fun Run & Hike launches

There aren’t many places with a more epic view of Table Mountain than the Tygerberg Nature Reserve and trail runners as well as hikers now have the opportunity to take on a unique fun run and hike on the trails of this hidden gem of Cape Town every full moon.

The 5km event will start and finish at the Welgemoed entrance of the Tygerberg Nature Reserve and has been timed that participants will be able to see the sun set and the full moon rise as they make their way up Tortoise trail to Watsonia past the masts, down the hill to turn left on Striped Weasel, left on Ukhetshe, up to the viewpoint, down Golden Mole and continuing back up Golden Mole back to the gate.

Participants will have a maximum of 2 and a half hours to complete the course with a lead runner showing the way and a sweep to look after the last runners on course. All proceeds will go to the Nature Care Fund.
