Legend Runner – Uphill Challenge

20 March 2021

Taal Monument – Paarl


The Legend Runner Uphill Challenge is a fun trail running / walking uphill event. NO OBSTACLES

Participants will run/walk uphill for 8.5km to Paarl Rock (this is the official challenge part of the event) and then hike back down for 5km to the Taal Monument, where they will finish and receive a medal. 

Our mission with the Uphill Challenge is to create awareness and exhibit tour operators, wheel operators and event organisers who all promote our country and beautiful destinations, but due to a challenging year, had no income. We want to educate locals and change their mindset to rather use inbound operators to help them plan their holidays, this will create jobs/income during these tough times. 

(Participants who are slightly less fit and do not want to do the 5km hike downhill, can catch a lift back to the Taalmonument from Krismis Camp with one of our tour operators, but this will only happen after the last participant has arrived.)

This is NOT an official timed event. We recommend that participants register and use the Strava app to log their race activity and/or use other fitness devices for individual timing if desired.
