Route description:

Walkers and Runners have a choice between 5km and 10km. The longer, 10 km route includes some challenging hill climbing, whereas the shorter route is easier and suitable for all ages. As it is a working farm no dogs are allowed. The route provides a rare treat as you go through vineyards alongside the Lourens River with breathtaking views of the Helderberg Mountains on the one side and the ocean on the other. Water will be available on the route.

Wheelchair users using off road chairs are welcome to complete the 5km route followed by the walkers and runners. This gravel route contours through the orchards and vineyards with a comfortable downhill towards the finish. For wheelchair users in day chairs and power chairs, there is a paved and tarred route available through the beautiful wine estate which follows a different course and is relatively flat and easy.

There will be medals for the first 800 to finish and the first three to finish in each category will be eligible for gift hampers. All participants can enter into the lucky draw that will take place directly after the event.
