THE RUN



The longer 15 kilometre race caters for the more experienced trail runner. The opening stages are similar to the shorter route as you head out along a flat stretch along the edge of the Bot River Lagoon. Once you are safely across the tar road the route takes you along a meandering path which crosses over a few natural streams before you reach the zigzagging uphill. The climbing is demanding as you make your way to the highest point on the route at 487 metres. The second half of the race features some firm sandy paths which meander down off the mountain side. With the climb under your belt you can really focus on getting some good speed here as you make your way back toward the tar road that you crossed over earlier in the day. The shorter six kilometre is well suited to novices. The terrain is easy going and the amount of climbing has been kept to a minimum. The run follows the edge of the Bot River lagoon on a combination of jeep-track, horse trails, single-track and dirt road. You run through the Rooisand Nature Reserve where you may get glimpses of wild horses which can be seen roaming freely close to the estuary. These were abandoned by a British garrison after the Anglo Boer War and still live here to this day.
