This popular race is embedded in the fabric of the coastal village of Kommetjie; known for its friendly culture. When Harfield Harriers took over the race, it was moved to the sweeping Cape Peninsula coastal stretch of Soetwater, and it helps to conserve an area rich in biodiversity.
The route follows a figure-of-eight between the villages of Kommetjie and Scarborough, along a richly decorated coastline. It’s a challenging, but stunning course. There’s also a 10km and a 5km Fun Run.
Unique Fact: Indigenous saplings are awarded to finishers instead of medals, and they’re encouraged to plant the trees. If you don’t want to plant your tree you can donate it to SANParks. The event is a #RunGreen race with no plastic sachets. Runners are asked to carry their own cup or bottle to refill at the water stations. Compostable Cups are provided if you forget yours.
Starting times: 21.1km: 6:30am; 10km: 7:10am; 5km Fun Run: 7:30am.
