Route Description

The event starts and finishes at Voortrekker monument. New hiking routes have been laid out by single track guru David who developed Groenkloof, and these will be the routes you'll be traveling on. Spectacular single track is around every hook and bend. As always trail runners on the short route can expect a moderate to easy route, while the long distance will be challenging with lots of climbing and rocky underfoot conditions. The event will prove to be a true test of stamina, strength and fitness. Water and refreshment stations will be available on the route.
