THE RUN


Three magnificent passes connect the Great and Little Karoo through the majestic Swartberg Mountain Range. Of these, Seweweekspoort is the least well-known and it is also arguably the most rugged and isolated


FACILITES

Transport is provided back to the start.



The 82 kilometre race can be conveniently broken down into three distinct stages. The first, through Seweweekspoort, is 26 kilometres long and climbs approximately 600 metres. This part of the road goes through the Swartberg Nature Reserve and Water Catchments Area. The second stage back through Seweweekspoort is largely downhill. This is an exhilarating section. The third section, which joins the same route as the 25 kilometre Mini Challenge will again prove challenging.
FACILITES

Transport is provided back to the start.



The 25 kilometre Mini Challenge crosses a few streams, which may prove tricky depending on the rainfall. Here there are some single track and gravel roads which take you through fruit farms in the magnificent Hoeko Valley. The most strenuous uphill sections are encountered in the last 10 kilometres before the finish line.
FACILITES

Transport is provided back to the start.

EDITORS NOTES



EDITORS NOTES

This race will be held for the 17th time in 2019. Seweweekspoort was described by author Louis Leipoldt as one of the seven wonders of the Cape. There is a social upliftment programme which aims at sport development in the area. Last year 60 school children from surrounding schools received sponsored entry into the 25 kilometre race. Proceeds from the race also help schools in Ladismith and Zoar with sports development.
