Trail Hunter Events
ULTRA TRAIL CLARENS
The Ultimate Maluti Mountain Ultra Trail.
This exclusive event has an entry cap of 100 runners and is only suitable for serious and experienced runners. Gradients as steep as 1:4 will test you on all levels, so come prepared!
Runners will have an early start at 05H00 Saturday morning heading west on an open 7km dirt / tar road to warm up the legs. The mountain on the left is called Surrender Hill which marks a battle zone of the Anglo Boer War. This is the point where your battle for glory will begin. Welcome to Mountain Terrain!!
After a 10km run uphill, you will arrive at Check Point 1. ( CP 1 ) The section from CP1 to CP 2 consists of a few 2-3km gradual descends and ascents, with one climb that rapidly ascends with 200 meters altitude in just over 1km.
2nd CP is about 23km. At all the CP’s there will be a fully stocked water point and a medical point.
After CP 2 the road is relatively flat and continues eastwards along the banks of the Caledon river which separates South Africa and the Kingdom of Lesotho.
At 7Km after CP2 you will be arriving at an intersection where you should keep left. This point is after your halfway mark and at this stage you can expect a series of 5 tight hairpin corners that will take you to the summit of 2180 meters.
From here you will be gradually descending on zig zag custom build single tracks towards CP3 which will be at 38km.
The Cut Off will be at CP3 and runners will have 7 hours to reach this point. Runners who do not reach this point before the cut off will be transported back to race village.
The final climb is 6km long and gradually accents with a rocky jeep trail. Once on top of this climb most of the hard work will be done.
