Dragonfly Tri

Come join us at Capaia Wines this Heritage Day and celebrate with a proudly South African boerewors braai!

Whether a novice trail runner or an experienced adventure enthusiast, we now have 3 route options available for all fitness levels.  Plus a delicious boerewors roll included in your entry and fantastic lucky draw prizes.


The race starts at Havana Hills 6km from Capaia and runs along the gravel road to Capaia.

The short 6.5km runs along the gravel road and finishes at Capaia. Perfect for families and walkers. 

Our longer 15km is great for intermediate runners, taking you also on the gravel road from Havana Hills to Capaia but then adds some distance on the Capaia farm around the dam and over the rise to some single track which wraps back down through the vineyards to the finish line with a max elevation of 200m. 

We have added a new 21km which will be a great option for the experienced trail runners looking for a challenge. The 21km starts at Havana Hills and runs along the gravel road to Capaia. At Capaia the route heads into the mountains for some steep but breathtaking single track before heading back to the finish through the vineyards.

Grab your boerewors roll at Mariella's Restaurant when you finish. Wristband presented to collect.

Lunch is available at the Mariella's restaurant - bookings essential - contact them directly on 072 770 9695 / [email protected]
