You might have driven down the Blaauwklippen Road on your way to one of the fantastic wineries in this valley but have you ever dreamed of running along the Blouklip River, up towards the Helderberg mountain and along Stellenbosch mountain, passing all these wineries along the way?
Join us for a bigger and better Blouklip Trail Run on the 11th of November as we explore this beautiful valley, exclusively opened just for us on this one day. We will start at Waterford and run past a great number of indigenous trees that are approved by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) as part of an attempt to sustain the ecosystem on the farm. The 21km route will head up to the foot of the Dome, the Driekoppen peaks and some stunning trails at De Trafford Wines. Some unique single track that is the winemaker’s regular walking path to the mountain will be your route to their cellar. At Keermont you will run past their vineyards and along the river under a canopy of trees. A beautiful old bridge along the route will take you back in time. Dornier is not only part of the Golden Triangle but their single tracks along the Stellenbosch mountain will be a first class experience along the route.
