Our Story

MaXi-Race has been launched in 2011 in Annecy. The race quickly became successful due to their amazing trails with incredible views on the exquisite Annecy lake. It is now a mythical race in France that welcomes more than 9000 runners each year during the last Week-End of May. This success has convinced the organizers to create MaXi-Race World which is a call to travel and explore. MaXi-Race World now has 6 races among 6 wonderful countries for trail running: France, Sicily, Ecuador, China, Madeira and of course South Africa.

MaXi-Race Cape Winelands is bringing the internationally recognised brand of MaXi-Race to the African continent with a festival of trail running that will take place in the iconic Cape Winelands area between Franschhoek and Stellenbosch on 5/6 October 2019. This event is designed to attract new blood into trail running and to satisfy the maximum of runners thanks to different races format from 20 to 100km. This project will benefit the communities that the route traverse through. A partnership between MaXi-Race World, Pure Adventures, MTO and the charity Edunova has been made. Our goal is to create an event that will have maximum impact on the great community and bring an educational aspect of the  “Alpine Culture” to the community at large.
