The farm roads and sometimes single-track mountain paths set this race apart from your average road run.

 

No wonder we’re known as, “The toughest race with the warmest heart.”

ROUTE DESCRIPTION

This race has a similar profile to its half marathon ‘big brother’. The route is demanding with the first few kilometres consisting of a hard, steady, upward climb on tar roads through Bredasdorp. You then head out onto gravel roads through Fynbos and the farmlands on the outskirts of town.

The last half of the race is mainly downhill, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the scenery. But be warned: make sure you have some energy to spare for the steep hill as you enter Bredasdorp.

Once you’re over the hill, it’s a downhill sprint/jog to the Sports Ground (where you finish on grass). Here you have the opportunity to refresh yourself (coffee and food are available).

Normal road running shoes are advised for this race.

TOTAL ASCENT: 161 m
