THE RUN



The 2020 edition of the brutal Heaven & Hell Mountain Marathon in the Southern Drakensberg Highlands will include a new 88 kilometre race boasting 7510 metre elevation gain and in this race, the first male will receive R25 000 cash and so will the first female provided they finish within the 25 hour cut off. The 88km race consists of 4 x 22km laps and is open to anyone that is 25 years or older.  Race date for all races is Wednesday and Thursday, 23 & 24 September 2020.

Based at the Alpine Swift Trails High Altitude Training Facility in the Rhodes Village area of the Southern Drakensberg, the races are run at an average altitude of 2 150 metres and the route has everything a mountain runner looking for the ultimate challenge could hope for - steep gradients, technical wilderness terrain, multiple crossings of the famous Bell River, multiple peak summits at over 2 500 metres, pristine mountains and spectacular scenery.
