75km, 45km and 30km Routes

75km

RACE START: 5am in FRANSCHHOEK | 17 Hour Cutoff | FINISH @ LAERSKOOL STELLENBOSCH

FRANSCHHOEK CHURCH > MONT ROCHELLE > BERGRIVER DAM > BERGRIVER VALLEY > ASSEGAAIBOSCHKLOOF > JONKERSHOEK > STELLENBOSCH

We feel this is the best Sub-100k route in SA! Period.

Last year we were caught off guard by the rain! We won't let it happen this year.

This route was more than 5 years in the making and we'd like to thank Cape Nature for the access this year. (Please note the Assegaaiboschkloof / Bergriver Neck section is a no access area outside of the event!).

45km

RACE START: 8am in FRANSCHHOEK | 10 Hour Cutoff | FINISH @ LAERSKOOL STELLENBOSCH

FRANSCHHOEK CHURCH > BERGRIVER DAM > BANHOEK CONSERVANCY > BOTMASKOP > STELLENBOSCH

Our 45km presents an incredible introduction to entry-level ultra trail runners and a fast race for elites.

30km

RACE START: 9am in BANHOEK | 6 Hour Cutoff | FINISH @ LAERSKOOL STELLENBOSCH

BANHOEK > BOTMASKOP > STELLENBOSCH

This Race was incredibly popular on its launch last year!

This is your stepping stone race from the 20km to the 45km and beyond. The 30km starts in the Banhoek Valley, runs to Laerskool Stellenbosch and is a fast and runnable route.

20km, 10km and 5km Routes

We have some new and exciting plans in place for Maxi Fans in 2024...

20km

RACE START: 4pm | 4 hour Cutoff | START & FINISH @ LAERSKOOL STELLENBOSCH

What's new? Our 20k is going to be a Sunset Run in 2024! So bring your headlamp...

The toughest of our races in terms of elevation to distance! 

The good news is that it's not a technical route and all climbs are undulating switchback trails or jeep track, so no steps or rocky inclines!

10km

RACE START: 5pm | 3 hour Cutoff | START & FINISH @ LAERSKOOL STELLENBOSCH

What's new? We've dropped a couple of km's (and dropped the 7k) to encourage runners to up from their 2023 Maxi targets and round off our races...

This will also be a Sunset Run this year so you can look forward to seeing the lights come on in town while on the route and finish to a buzzing night time Race Village!

5km

It's FUN! It's FREE! It's 'WHEEL FRIENDLY'! Designed for the whole family! If you're a Park Runner then this one's for you...
