20km, 13km and 7km Routes
Our routes for the 20km and 13km races will follow the same route as 2021.
Both routes will take runners towards the famous 'Hangbrug' and through the Eerste River into Stellenbosch mountain. The longest climb will welcome you from here so that we can get you onto the most scenic trail as soon as possible.
From here runners can experience the Blue Gum-and Pine Tree forests, Fynbos and Farmlands that make up the route through Coetzenburg, Eden and the farms that line the Blaauwklippen road towards Mont Marie farm and back.
The 13km route will turn back at the first Aid Station at Eden Forest, through the University 'Proefplaas', Coetzenburg and Eerste River Trail back towards the start.
Our inaugural 7km route is for young racers and fun runners alike. Be ready to challenge yourself a bit as we get you ready for a life in trail running!
Following the 20km and 13km route, the 7km will turn off just before the climb really starts to chew the legs to keep you on the Stellenbosch bergpad. From here you will follow the route above the University sports fields towards the Eerste River trail and back to the start. You have the same cutoff time as the 13km runners, so feel free to come and take a comfortable Sunday walk. (If you take longer that's also okay!).
