Well-known South African trail runner, Chantel Nienaber will be seen enjoying the trails in Kleinmond on Sunday, 24 April 2016 at the much anticipated Cell C Arabella Trail Run Challenge.

“I enjoy participating in events that are organised by Stillwater Sports,” says Nienaber.  “I even go to their events when I’m not participating, just to experience the vibe.  I love nature and am really looking forward to a day out in the mountains, enjoying the most picturesque views of the lagoon. Sadly, due to my full time job I don’t get to run in the mountains much during the week.”

“I only started trail running at the age of 33,” continues Nienaber.  “The sport has taken me to the most exquisite places.  Kleinmond is an awesome area that features a nice variety of terrain.  This is ideal for a trail run event.  As I will be racing at another event the Saturday prior to the Cell C Arabella Trail Run Challenge, my goal on the Sunday will not be to podium but instead to have a really good time out on the trails.”

The 15km Cell C Arabella Trail Run Challenge has also attracted the attention of elite South African trail runner, Ryan Sandes.  “The fact that the event caters for both trail runners and mountain bikers is what makes it so appealing,” says Sandes.  “It’s accessible to everyone, making it a real family event.  You don’t need to be a crazy endurance sport fanatic to take part.  I am looking forward to hanging out with like-minded people, kicking back and having a good time.”
