This iconic event takes place for the seventh time and will once again take participants along the world-famous Garden Route in the Western Cape. Runners will be treated to a unique combination of forests, mountains and beach. The majority of the 80km race takes place on SANParks protected property in the Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma Mountains and along the coast surrounding Wilderness. The trail follows pristine hiking trails in the mountains and indigenous forests, and culminates along a stretch of unspoiled coastline and an exhilarating 60m run across a floating bridge on the Touw River. The race includes a ‘lite’ option (20km, 15km and 20km) so that less experienced runners can also participate in the race. To find out more about the race and to register, visit trisport.co.za
