WHAT TO EXPECT

45km route – this is a point to point mountainous run. This is definitely not for the novice runner. 90% of the run is on mountain top grassy terrain. Definite ankle twisters if you’re not well prepared for off road running. You will be expected to carry all your food and water for the duration of the run as there are no water points or streams on the mountain tops. The average runner will be out there for at least 8 to 10 hours. One water point at dam wall.

12km route – this route is suited for the novice trail runner or road junkies who would like to cross over to the other side. The route is on good paths most of the time with no serious hills. There will be two water point on the circular route, but don’t fear as there will be lots of beer at the finish.

(The organizers reserve the rights to amend any arrangements or cancel / postpone the event in the case of extreme weather or other dangerous conditions.)

5km route - The 5km route (fun run) is for the whole family with most of the run on jeep track on a beautiful, scenic game farm.
