Some hints and tips for Two Oceans Trail runners.

    • Water – carry your own! Either a hydration pack or hip belt bottle holder.
    • The route is marked, but going on route training is a good idea.
    • Trail running has obstacles such as rocks, roots, branches and bushes – concentrate!
    • Trail running times are often double for the same road running distance.
    • Be prepared for the weather on the day, e.g. sun hat and lotion, or wind breaker and warm kit.
    • If attempting to pass another runner on the single track, be polite.
    • We are in a nature reserve so no litter of any kind please (you may face disqualification if you do).
    • Running in mountains takes you to remote areas.
    • Enjoy the journey and the views.
