The Salomon Skyrun traverses the Witteburg Mountain range of the Drakensburg and is a self- supported and self –navigational event. Runners have the option of doing the Salomon Skyrun 100km, the Salomon Skyrun Lite 65km, or the brand new SkyRun Marathon 42.2km.
Brand new 42.2km Skyrun Marathon Event in 2015. Cut-off of 7 hours, marked route with 3 aid stations.
The Skyrun Marathon presented by Salomon is a marked route with 3 aid stations and is designed to be an entry level event into the world of Skyrun! The route will mainly follow the valleys and hills around the Wartrail area, finishing at the same venue as the Skyrun, The Wartrail Country Club. Runners will not traverse any of the high peaks that the Skyrun 100 and 65 routes cross but will still give the athletes a feel for what the Skyrun is all about!
Large Cash prizes will be awarded to category winners.
