THE RUN



This beautiful race first runs through Simon’s Town on the coastal road for about three kilometres before turning westwards towards Red Hill. Brace yourself for a climb that is usually reserved for Cycle Tour cyclists. The hill is about five kilometres long and will test both the body and the mind. There are breathtaking views of False Bay from here. Take your time; this is the Cape at its finest.

The three kilometre run down the other side is a welcome relief as you head down to the Atlantic coast. Enjoy this most stunning part of the peninsula, fairly flat running for about nine kilometres along the road bordering the Cape Point Nature Reserve. At the entrance to the park the route takes a northward turn and drops to sea level for around four kilometres. The last six kilometres are fairly flat, but include a nasty but very slight climb at the 28-kilometre marker back into the finish in Simon’s Town.




PRIZES AND GIVE-AWAYS

Gold medals go to the first 10 men and women, the next 90 finishers get silver and all other finishers within the time limit get bronze. Lucky draw prizes are given out at prize-giving.

EDITORS NOTES



EDITORS NOTES

This race finds its place on the calendar as a perfect 30 kilometre build-up to both the Cape Town Marathon and the Festival of Running 100/160 kilometre events. While walkers are welcome this is not a formal walking event. Earlier in the year the Fish Hoek Athletics Club tackles Red Hill in one direction and this route offers a reverse experience of the same monster. This event generously gives you the beauty of the peninsula.
