Merrell Summer Run
November 10 @ 7:00 am
“The one with that hill.” Run – voted the best place to get back to nature in Gauteng for 9 years in a row – and climbs the relentless ridges of the adjoining Muldersdrift Hobby Park. The 12km and 20km routes which head into the open rocky Highland grassland and include more technical running sections, together with the 6km loop, are all a great challenge to tackle on a Sunday morning. Fiercely competed or enjoyed at a more leisurely pace, both pass by the cascading waterfall and cliffs home to a breeding pair of majestic Verreaux’s Eagles. Bring a picnic and come and enjoy the gardens with us. There will be food and drinks on sale and a jumping castle for the kids.
Tea, coffee and assorted muffins will be on sale at the early morning registration.
Eagle’s Fare Restaurant inside the Gardens is open from 09h00 and offers a superb menu or bring along the family and a picnic and enjoy the beautiful setting relaxing on the lawns.
The Merrell Summer Kiddies Run will feature a magical 2km marked loop inside the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens. The little trail running enthusiasts will be led by a superhero character alongside either Mom or Dad. START IS AT 09h30. As they cross the line they will be met with cheers and hoots of delight. Moms and Dads please make sure all kiddies have hats, sunblock and running shoes. We will make sure your telephone number is attached to them.
Entries will be available on the day.
