THE RUN


When you start a race at the Botanical Gardens in George you know that it will be a special treat. Up and through Tonnelbos is how this journey begins with a stern 400 metre climb. With Tierkop Hut ahead of you there is the Old George Dam and some long, hard climbing before you reach The Hut and some welcome refreshment. Onwards now to North Station, with very little space for overtaking on the trail, this will be the ideal opportunity for the runners with strong technical abilities to open up a lead. Now comes the ridgeline along Dizzy Heights, a tricky bit of running before you descend along the dangerous switchbacks to the Kaaimans River which at this point is no more than a mountain stream. North Station and refreshment, drink before you tackle the gruelling Craddock Pass. Your navigational skill will be tested on the Forest Buzzard Hiking Trail in Witfontein before you head back to the Botanical Gardens.
