THE RUN



This challenging trail run takes place on the rough terrain around the Voortrekker Monument.




The first five kilometres are run on tar, followed by the next seven kilometres on gravel. This stretch includes a testing climb up the ‘little kloof’, Broekskeurbult.


It is here that the real challenge begins with a tough run through the veld and up to the infamous Fort Schanskop. Many seasoned campaigners regard this as the toughest 25 kilometre on the calendar, if not physically, certainly mentally.
Type Circular
Sub Event Off-Road Running

EDITORS NOTES



EDITORS NOTES

One should rather view this event as an ‘experience’ rather than merely a run. The race commemorates the Springbok Soldiers of South Africa’s past. Before the start a small ceremony to remember the fallen is held. It is similar to the one held at Menin Road Bridge in Belgium. Planes from the South African Harvard Club fly over and it has become a tradition to start the race with a cannon shot once the planes have passed. Pipers, buglers, cannons and a carnival atmosphere all contribute to a very popular race. A five kilometre Bokkie Run will be held at the same time.
