The Green Forest Trail Run Series is a series of 3 downhill runs through the beautiful forests of the Western Cape, all within less than an hour from Cape Town.
Each event offers a choice of the following routes (approximate distance):
- 5km fun run that is aimed at novice runners and families. The majority of the route will be non-technical but we keep it interesting and give you a taste of what you can expect when you sign up for either of the longer routes. This route starts and finishes at the bottom of the forest and generally follows a flat’ish course. This route is not officially timed but we will have prizes for the top placed runners.
- 10km downhill forest run starts at Point A, high up in the forest and finishes at Point B way below. We will bus you to the start point before the race. We try to avoid the uphills as much as possible, but generally throw in one or two to ensure that you enjoy your well deserved coke at the finish. The route is chosen for its scenic beauty and fast flowing trails, which presents a great opportunity to improve on your Personal Best.
- 21km downhill forest run starts at Point A, high up in the forest and finishes at Point B way below. We will bus you to the start point before the race . We try to avoid the uphills as much as possible, but forests being as they are, there will always be a few short and sharp ones, just to keep you on your toes! Competitors are guaranteed beautiful vistas as they wind their way down through the forest, vineyard and orchards.
Each event makes a contribution to a local conservation initiative or charity in close vicinity to the venue.
