Trail Running enthusiasts are invited to join in on the action at South Africa’s premier 2-day MTB Experience, the Origin Of Trails MTB Experience by taking on the Origin Of Trails Trail Run on Sunday, 25 November 2018.

“Stellenbosch is a mountain biker and trail runner’s dream location both for training and racing,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director Stillwater Sports.  “Off-road athletes are in for a treat as both the Origin Of Trails MTB Experience and Origin Of Trails Trail Run feature the best trails on offer in the beautiful city of oaks.  Entrants can look forward to experiencing a vast network of world class trails.  Once across the finish line, we’d like to encourage all entrants, families and friends to stick around and enjoy the festival village vibe.  We can’t think of a better way to close off a busy year of racing than by spending a day out on the magnificent Stellenbosch trails with family and friends.”

The Origin Of Trails Trail Run boasts two exciting distances:  a 12km – 15km Long Route and a 5km Short Route.

“The Origin Of Trails Trail Run caters for the entire family,” says Pieter du Plessis, Origin Of Trails Race Director.  “The 5km route is ideal for both newcomers to the sport and younger children wanting to run with their parents.  Entrants can look forward to experiencing some great single track and spectacular views.  The Coetzenburg Trails and Paradyskloof Forest are iconic to Stellenbosch.”

“Runners taking on the longer route can expect more single and jeep track,” continues du Plessis.  “They will also glimpse G-Spot, be treated to amazing mountain views and fynbos.  Although you don’t need to be super fit to take on the long route, a fair level of fitness will add to the experience.”
