Wed 27 Dec 2023 @ Wilderness, Western Cape

Chain Gang Events (Pty) Ltd

Event Information

The 11th edition of Carné’s Full Moon Beach Run will now take place on Wednesday, 27 December 2023 when the stars, full moon and low tide combine perfectly once again. 

Chain Gang Events in partnership with Wilderness NSRI, the event’s official charity, want to help you tick this one off your bucket list, and run on what’s been described as the best stretch of beach in the country! Join us on the evening of Wednesday, 27 December 2023.


Starting at Swartvlei Beach, the 21km runners will pass Gericke’s Point, the rocky landmark resembling a lion’s head. Thereafter enjoy kilometers of mixed sand and rock shelves with the warm Benguela current on your left and the fossilised sandstone dunes towering above you on your right. Passing Kleinkranz village (the 7km Runners starting point) and a mid-run refreshment stop, runners then reach Flat Rock and a few more kilometers of sand running to the finish at Wilderness NSRI.
