Houtkapper Trail Run

Annual Houtkapper Trail Run on 30 June 2019

The event offers 3 routes of varying lengths and difficulty. Taking runners through the forests made famous by Daleen Mathee (the late authoress of Circles in the forest, Fiela's child, Moerbeibos and others), runners will pass through Krisjan-se-nek (where Daleen Mathee's ashes were scattered), the Daleen Mathee memorial and the site of the 880 year old Yellowwood tree known as the Daleen Mathee Big Tree.

The 15km and 27km routes have been chosen not only to challenge the intermediate to experienced trail runners but to provide them with an opportunity to experience the deepest secrets at the heart of the Garden Route National park. Single track and terrain to excite trail runners of all ability including an easier route for the beginner trail runner of 9km.

Water can be drunk and bottles/hydration packs filled at the various watercrossings - don't be put off by the colour (tannin).

This event is held under the rules and regulations of ASA and Athletics SWD
