Ultra-trail Cape Town (UTCT)

Nov 27 @ 4:00 am - Nov 28 @ 6:00 pm

UTCT presents four trail races of 100km, 65km, 35km and 21km. Each that traverse the mountains of the beautiful Cape Peninsula. The host city Cape Town is a world-class destination that features highly on any ‘must visit’ list.

The City is shaped by two oceans and Table Mountain National Park, a dramatic mountain chain that stretches from Table Bay to Cape Point.

The races traverse sections of:

-Table Mountain

-Lion’s Head, Signal Hill

-Orangekloof

-Llandudno

-Hout Bay

-Constantia Winelands

-Kirstenbosch Nature Reserve

-Devil’s Peak

These form part of the iconic natural world heritage site and include one of the new Natural Seven Wonders of the World.

All four races consist of technical terrain with steep ascents and descents. Weather can vary drastically with near sub-zero temperatures in the early morning on top of Table Mountain  to 30 degrees plus during the latter part of the day.

Participants are reminded that the UTCT races are genuine mountain excursions. This means that necessary care and respect must be taken when running within Table Mountain National Park and surrounds.
