Bastille Day Trail Run is a wilderness adventure, for which you need to be prepared – you have been warned!

The Franschhoek Mountains in July can be covered in snow. The rivers are scenic yet cold.

This Trail Running adventure sells out every year, numbers are limited. You are assured of a wild time, wet feet and rewarding OBS, served by French Maids.

All Routes have changed !! This Trail Run will be different from what you are used to! Adventure is assured. Forget avoiding the puddles, your feet are going to be wet today. You will cross cold rivers, get close up with prickly bushes, and be soaked in huge views!
