Route maps, profiles and descriptions

For the Trail Runners, the challenge does not stop. Although you will be able to stretch the running legs initially on jeep track, it will not be too long before the ‘scramble’ starts. Varying between jeep track and single track, the trail run leg will take the athlete up slopes and along certain trails that are not accessible to the mountain biker, thus offering spectacular views not normally seen by the casual visitor to Grabouw. After the main climb and the following descent, the trail run will bring the athlete along the shores of the Eikenhof Dam, back to the finish line and well deserved refreshment. Runners will need to ensure that some energy is saved to tackle the last section along the beach!
