Join the AFRICANX Training Run 3 at Constantia Nek on Sunday

“Let Nature Give You A Run For Your Money”


Constantia Nek will be buzzing with excitement this coming Sunday 05 February 2023 with trail runners enjoying a fun filled AFRICANX Training Run 3 at 06:30.

“The countdown to South Africa’s premier 3-Day Stage Trail Run, the AFRICANX TRAILRUN has begun, and we are excited to help trail runners prepare by hosting a number of fun-filled training runs in the build-up to race day,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports and Founder of the AFRICANX TRAILRUN. “The AFRICANX Training Run 3 at Constantia Nek will consist of a 17.5km route that will feature the same type of flowing single track and climbs as that of Day 2 of the AFRICANX TRAILRUN. Runners should plan on running between 2½ to 3 hours and can expect some fantastic single-track sections with technical climbs in between.”

“AFRICANX ambassador Ashraf Orrie aka Mr O, will lead the group on Sunday,” continues Meyer. “Although the route won’t be marked, there will be pacers and pack runners with various pace groups. Look forward to an awesome morning of trail running with the AFRICANX family. Be sure to take lots of photographs.”

“This year sees me coming of age at my 10th running of the AFRICANX TRAILRUN in March,” says Orrie. “I wouldn’t miss it for anything. The event really is a coming together of the AFRICANX family from far and wide. It’s a weekend that’s filled with fun and laughter, good food and entertainment. It’s exactly what you need after a hard day of running on the beautiful trails in Elgin, Grabouw, Houw Hoek and surrounds. I am excited to be leading the AFRICANX Training Run 3 this coming Sunday. Trail runners will get a good idea of what to expect come race weekend. Also be sure to ask lots of questions, that is why we are there.”
