Since its introduction to the line-up of events hosted under the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon umbrella in 2010, the trail run has enjoyed tremendous popularity and success, with entries for the 2013 event selling out in less than three hours. Runners can choose between the 10km route – a perfect first-time race for trail novices – and the 22km run that caters for more experienced runners.
Run through the forests above UCT, with inspiring vistas over the peninsula, on Good Friday morning. Both the short and the long course take runners along the lower slopes of Devil’s Peak and nearby forests. Open to beginners and experienced trail runners, the challenging routes offer runners varied terrain with steep ascents and descents.
All runners must carry their own water and food. Start times: The Trail Runs will take place on Good Friday and finish before the Fun Runs start at 12:30. Both routes start at the Jameson Plaza, UCT and take in sections of forest, the slopes of Devils Peak and Groote Schuur Estate, finishing on the UCT rugby fields.
