Greyton Mountain Marathon 2021
Sat 29 May - Sun 30 May 2021 @ Greyton, Western Cape


Organiser
Greyton Trail Running Society

2 days | 42kms | 1500m+ Elevation Gain

Should the event be cancelled due to COVID 100% of entry fees will be returned.

Following the success of our annual Greyton Brew Run, the next logical step was to create another race with a similar vibe, but elevated in terms of technical terrain and elevation. 

The Greyton Mountain Marathon is a two-day stage race that winds along the upper contour of the Riviersonderend Mountains and the folds that encircle the towns of Greyton and Genadendal. The entire route is marathon-distance (42 kms) spread over two days – 21 kms on the Saturday, and 21 on the Sunday. (Relay option included). 

We’ve veered off the known routes for this one and included a big chunk of unmarked mountainside frequented only by local hikers and those who know their way around obscure hiking websites. It’s pure mountain running. 

As with all of our events, we’re not merely in the business of doing business. All proceeds from the Greyton Mountain Marathon go towards the Greyton House Bursary Fund, providing financial aid to children from disadvantaged communities attending Greyton House school. Each step you take will support one of our learners.
