Greyton Mountain Marathon 2023
Sat 17 Jun - Sun 18 Jun 2023 @ Greyton, Western Cape

Greyton Trail Running Society


2 days | 42kms | 1500m+ Elevation Gain

The Greyton Mountain Marathon is an annual 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. This will be the third time we hold this event. 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.
