AFRICANX Training Run 2 heads to Tshwane

                                             “Let Nature Give You A Run For Your Money”


Gauteng runners are invited to join the fun-filled 10km AFRICANX Training Run 2 that will start at 07:00 at the Wolwespruit Bike & Trail Park in Tshwane on Sunday 05 February 2023.

“The AFRICANX TRAILRUN is South Africa’s premier 3-Day Stage Race that takes place each year in the Western Cape in March,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports and Founder of the AFRICANX TRAILRUN. “To help trail runners get race ready we are excited to host numerous training runs in the Western Cape and Gauteng. A number of our entrants actually come from Gauteng. The training runs are also the perfect opportunity for runners to get to know each other and to get to know our team.”

“The Wolwespruit Bike & Trail Park is the perfect venue for the AFRICANX Training Run 2 because it is safe and easy to access from all corners of Tshwane,” continues Meyer. “Runners can look forward to a well-marked 4.5km (purple boards) and 6.5km (orange boards) route. By combining the two routes runners will get to enjoy a +-9.5km route as certain sections of the two routes do overlap. The Training Run 2 will be led out by AFRICANX regulars Thabang Madiba, Nico Sterk and/or Franza Landman. Runners can look forward to enjoying trails that boast magnificent scenery and fantastic views from the top of the mountain.”

“AFRICANX is an amazing event that brings people together,” says seasoned trail runner Thabang Madiba. “I am excited to be involved with the Training Run in Tshwane. It gives me the perfect opportunity to share my experience with fellow runners. There is a nice restaurant right next to the start and exit of the trail at the Wolwespruit Bike & Trail Park. So be sure to stick around after your run.”
