GROOTVADERSBOSCH TRAIL RUN

THE RUN



This is a two day trail run in the exquisite Grootvadersbosch Nature Reserve and Boosmansbos Conservancy, deep into the Langeberg Mountains surrounding Barrydale and Heidelberg. The route is mainly single track with views of Barrydale from the mountain ridges. You run through indigenous and giant Redwood forests, endemic fynbos and lush river valleys.




The first day is the longest and the hardest. The route is about 30 kilometres with an accumulated altitude gain of 1,270 metres. An average runner should take about four hours to complete it.


Day two does have a fair amount of stretch in it but it is an easier outing. The route is about 20 kilometres long with an accumulated altitude gain of 900 metres. On average it should take about three hours to complete.

Other essential items include a wind shell or waterproof jacket, plasters and bandage, thermal space blanket, antihistamine tablets, cell phone with the numbers of the event organiser and sweepers saved, which will be available at registration, and your medical aid details. Due to its high altitude the weather conditions can be unpredictable. You must ensure that you are fully prepared. In the event of a medical emergency the majority of the routes are not accessible by vehicle and medical evacuation will be undertaken by Mountain Rescue and helicopter.

This reserve is one of eight World Heritage Sites in South Africa with a highly fragile ecosystem protected by Cape Nature Conservation and the Boosmansbos Conservancy.
