Trail Fun

This Event is limited to 170 entries only.  There are 80 entries reserved for members of TrailFun Hero. Together they make our 250 limit.   Unpaid entries will be deleted after 4 days unless you have contacted us and made a payment arrangement (Yes, we care about you and we make arrangements)

Trail Running on Wine Farms

  • Safe, Intermediate level 5km
  • Challenging 10km 
  • Run the 10km then 5km for 15km
  • Run the 10km x 2 for 21km
  • You can walk any distance

Please note : the 10km route will be a soft 10 (ie shorter than 10km).  Route will be published on FaceBook and Instagram over the weekend.  This script will be updated with further details too.

Mooiplaas is beautiful. A large portion of the Estate forms part of the Bottelary Hills Renosterveld Conservancy and is registered as Mooiplaas Private Nature Reserve - yip, that's where you are going.

For us, its not all views and running. Mooiplaas has some exceptional high end wines and a value range that is extremely good, and at their prices - you will love them. Yes, there is an MCC (and its really good)

Route maps will be posted over the weekend. This will be a soft 10km (shorter than 10km). There is some elevation (less than Ft Simon) but it is in the beginning while you are still fresh.  This is an intermediate level route with an uphill to start then beautiful scenery for the downhill.   Finish line has wine, breakfast, coffee and prize giving with lucky draws.  Mooiplaas has some amazing entry level wines - you have got to check these out, they are brilliant.  There is an excellent MCC here too.  This is going to be a fun Saturday.

There is a new format - to keep you safe !

Individual = start any time, alone or with friends

Group = Race, ready - steady - go

How cool is this, there is a choice of starts too.

  • The 5km and 10km have the option of a Traditional Group Start as runners race for podium positions and prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd.  (junior entries do not get prizes)
  • or, Start at your leisure with the individual start.  If you are looking for a fun,  relaxed day running through a wine farm then this is for you.  Start when you want, any time up to 10am.  No groups, no crowds, just you and nature ... and you can sleep late.
  • 15km and 21km are Individual Start only, there are no positional prizes, they are designed as L.S.D. training runs (long-slow-distance).
