Greyton Brew Run 2018

Greyton Brew Run

Greyton is well known for its amazing MTB and trail running routes available to all throughout the year.  SOME routes are kept secret and we are thrilled to have been granted access to the pristine Greyton Nature Reserve for this exclusive event…. 

However, access to the reserve is limited, and as a result we have to limit entries for the 2 longer routes to 100!  Due to popular demand, the 12km route is going back into the reserve this year.

So get those entries in asap and avoid missing out.

100% of the proceeds raised from this event go to our local village school, Greyton House.  


ROUTES AND PRICING

20km - R230

12km - R180

Kids 12 and under pay half price;

WALKERS ABSOLUTELY WELCOME AND ENCOURAGED

20km

Two main climbs await, both offering incredible views from opposite ends of Greyton of the valley below.

The flat start out of the village doesn't last long before connecting to some jeep track entering into the nature reserve; and then onto a superb newly created single track where the first real climb begins, and after a brief descent, takes you up and around Hardepeer Kloof on a steep path.

The footpath continues down to the top of Platkloof and then down to your first water point. Then it's into Noupoort and out again and over to the Gobos River crossing and onto a short piece of open jeep track. The split for the 20km takes you straight into Maermanskloof for your second proper climb rising quickly above the scenery below.

Take a breath before plummeting down and around for a south approach to the village up historic Vigne lane. There's craft beer at the finish, but you'll have to run brew, run!

12km

A similar entry into the nature reserve as per the 20km, onto a superb newly created single track where the first real climb begins, and after a brief descent, takes you up and around Hardepeer Kloof on a steep path.

The footpath continues down to the top of Platkloof and then down to your water point. Then it's into Noupoort and out again and over to the Gobos River crossing, towards a second small ascent, after which you'll be on a fast single track to the finish.

6km

About half the route is on jeep track and the other half single track, but we've kept it flattish and fast, but will take you almost right around Greyton.  Enjoy!

Where?

Start and finish  - The Old Potter’s Inn and Brewhouse have generously donated their venue (and their brew).  You’ll find them at 16 Main Road, Greyton.  You can’t miss it!

What does your entry get you?

Well the way it works….jumpstart your day with a coffee and padstal rusk. Along the route you’ll find two water points – one for the 12km and two for the 20km – we have Ice Tea energy drinks, cokes, water, treats and banana bread galore!  If you make it to the finish, and trust me you’ll want to…kick back on the lawns opposite Potter’s Inn and Brewhouse with a pint of Greytons very own brew.  Nothing could be better!

Timing

This is to be done professionally by the Entry Ninja team!

Prizes

The male and females on the podiums in each event will win prizes, and all entrants will receive an Old Potters Draught to cool you down on finishing.

The prize giving should take place at roughly 12:00pm on the lawn opposite Potters Inn.  There will be lucky draw prizes as well as fun sack races for the kiddies.

Lunch

Greyton has a few good restaurants very close to the race venue. There will also be some easy-food and drinks for sale on the lawn, or bring your own picnic and picnic blanket. Good chill out zone.

Parking

Pass Greyton House Village School (on your left) as you enter Greyton and park at the Old Moravian Hall next door to the yellow library.  Parking attendants will keep an eye on your car for the day.

FREE Childcare

Yes absolutely!  We are a school after all!  Teachers and child minders will be available to look after your little ones at the venue.  We will create a play area on the field at the venue.  But  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE give us an indication beforehand if you are going to use this facility – we need to make sure we have enough child minders on hand.  Either call Marley Hoffman at the school: 028 254 9260 or email [email protected]  for more info.  Indemnities will need to be signed. 

Registration

This can be done at Old Potter's Inn on the Friday evening before the race from 17h00 - 19h00, as well as from 06h45 on Saturday morning... So come down and enjoy a beer with us on the eve of the race, or have your starting block coffee to get you going in the morning.  Or Both!
