    • Event Summary: 
      • To raise funds for the preservation of the Clarens Nature Reserve, the Clarens Village Conservancy is hosting a one-day trail running event that will allow runners and walkers to share the magnificent views and terrain of this mountainous area. This event promises to be fun and challenging for both novices and experienced runners and one can choose from a 35km, a 21km or a 10km route. 
  • While the Clarens Village Conservancy is limited to trails that amount to about 25km, neighbouring farmers have opened up their land to allow the 35 km route to pass through segments of their unblemished, private game farm where animals roam - thus we can offer 14km of previously untouched trails to the public, further adding to the exclusivity of the event as these private trails will not be publicly accessible outside of race day. Both placement and spot prizes will be given away at prizegiving after the race. 


    • Early Bird Race Fees – Available online until August 27, 2022, includes a finishers medal and a day permit for the Clarens Nature Reserve: 
      • 10km = R180
      • 21km = R280
      • 35km = R380
      • As an Early Bird giveaway, the first 50 entries will get a free CVC membership. This membership is valid from 1 September 2022 to 31 August 2023 and allows a family of four to have free access to the Clarens Nature Reserve and its exquisite trails. An annual CVC membership usually costs R360 per year per household.
