About THE RACE

1556731070605181453067.png

Bloubospoort. Plaatfontein. Bulhoek. Koffiebus. Diknek ... And the iconic #Teebus.

This far-flung corner of the #Karoo where the Eastern Cape, Northern Cape and Free State cosy up to each other. This oft-forgotten piece of #RSA is both wasteland and heartland in stasis, with a rich history inexorably being eroded by urbanization, rural neglect and the economic collapse so typical of the #southafrican platteland.
And yet, the area brims with incredible richness and diversity. Characters - like Oom Charles on the farm where the venue is situated and you will be staying - are larger than life, and country hospitality overwhelms you around every corner.

The route and landscape promises to truly blow your mind. Running along remote tracks and farm roads tripping into imposing kopjes looming up from savanna grassland, weaving amidst #nguni cattle, or meandering through endless fields of mauve irises.
This is trailrun heaven, and you need to run here to understand the attraction of this wonderful space. 

  • Stage 1 on the Friday evening will be a 12km run under amazing Karoo stars

  • Stage 2 on Saturday morning you can choose between a 40km or a 20km option.

  • Stage 3 on Sunday morning you can choose between a 20km or 11 km run. 

  • You can choose only to run 1 day of your choice.
