ROUTE MAPS, PROFILES AND DESCRIPTIONS

For the Trail Runners, there is ample challenge to test out your training! Although you will be able to stretch the running legs initially on jeep track, it won’t 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 average Grabouw visitor! After the main climb and the following descent, the trail run will bring you along the shores of the Eikenhof Dam, back to the finish line for a well-deserved refreshment! Don’t forget to save some energy to tackle the last section along the beach!
