Push those boundaries – this is a spectacular experience you won’t forget. After the success of the inaugural event last year and the fantastic feedback we thank the Sani2c team for granting us access to the legendary section of day2 that winds down into the Umkomaas Valley. Runners have a special advantage of soaking up the breathtaking views which are normally missed by the cyclists who hurtle down these tracks at a mind-blowing pace.
Start times: (Sat 6 Sept) 30km: 7am; (Sun 7 Sept) 18km, 8km & 4km: 7am.
Day 1: 30km trail run
Winding single-tracks, steep descents, bush-lined footpaths towering cliffs, scenic passes and the best views of the Umkomaas River.
Day 2: Choose between a 18km trail run, an 8km trail run, a 20km MTB, or a 40km MTB.
18km Trail Run: the first 8km loop and then a more challenging and hilly route which will end your two days on a high after a proper trail run that is tough but beautiful.
8km trail run: forest single-tracks, natural bush, dairy pastures, grassland, and cattle paths in the Ixopo rural area of Alan Paton’s beautiful “Beloved Country”.
