Run / Ride The Vines Lockdown Run / Ride
Fri 29 May - Sat 30 May 2020 @ Paarl, Western Cape

Onsite Events

Run and Ride The Vines are Trail Runs and MTB events that take place and around the Boland, Breeriver and Worcester region in the Western Cape.

With the Covid 19 Virus that forced our country as well as other countries around the world into LOCKDOWN we are unfortunately not able to host our events.

With the success of our 1st virtual run and the fact that we will not be able to host our events for the foreseeable future I have decided to host our second event during lockdown. The fact that we can now run and ride outside our property allowed me to ad longer distances as well as a cycling section to the event.

This time around the event will take place over 6 day's instead of 12. Runners and riders will still be able to do shorter distances as they wish but the main event will be the following. The 6 participating wine farms will be confirmed shortly.

Lockdown Junior

Enter your kids for R10 to be part of the fun. You can then order a Lockdown Junior T Shirt and a medal as memory This will be something that he or she will remember for the rest of their lives!!

Remember that the Lockdown Shirts are only for participants.

Lockdown Run - Fun, Half / Full Marathon

Fun Run/Walk  -  6 day's  -  1km per day = 6km

Half Marathon  -  6 Day's  -  3.5km per day = 21km

Full Marathon  -  6 Day's  -  7km per day  =  42km

If we are allowed to stay outdoors for longer times by then, you will have the option to do the full Half or Full Marathon on Monday the 25th. If exercise times are still only from 6am to 9am and you can run fast enough you can then only do the 21km.

Lockdown Ride Fun, 50 / 100 Miler

Fun Ride - 6 Day's  -  3km per day  =  18km

50 Miler  -  6 Day's  -  13,5km per day  =  81km

100 Miler  -  6 Day's  -  27km per day  =  162km

The faster riders can do the 50 Miler on the Saturday. The average time for 50 Miles is about 3 hrs 30 min so you will have to hurry to do it under 3 hrs.
