Born in Annecy, France in 2011, the Maxi Race is now a global outdoor sports brand with six trail running events in Europe, Asia, South-America and South Africa.

As South Africa's version of this global trail family, Maxi Race Cape Winelands is run over six races (120, 75, 45, 20, 13 and a 7km fun run) across beautiful farms, reserves & mountains between Franschhoek & Stellenbosch over the first weekend of October.

Covid restrictions kept us to 775 runners in 2021 (2020 - 474, 2019 - 340), much less than the public demand for entries.

This has only strenghtened our resolve to build Africa's best trail run as we anticipate to welcome over a 1000 runners in 2022.
