  • Trail Run

Good Friday, 3 April 2015

The boom in trail running over the past few years prompted the Two Oceans Marathon race office to introduce its very own trail run through the forests above UCT offering inspiring vistas over the peninsula on Good Friday morning.

Both the Short and the Long runs start at the UCT grounds and take runners along the lower slopes of Devil’s Peak and nearby forests. Open to beginners and experienced trail runners, the challenging routes offer runners varied terrain with steep ascents and descents.

Please note that the minimum age for the 10km is 14 years of age and the minimum age for the 22km is 16 years of age. 

Entry Fees (non refundable) 

Substitutions will be allowed in the window period from 23 January 2015 to 4 March 2015.

Some hints and tips for Two Oceans trailists!

  • Water – carry your own! Either a hydration pack or hip belt bottle holder.
  • The route is marked, but doing on route training is a good idea – maps are available on the website.
  • 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 sort please.
  • Running in mountains takes you to remote areas.
  • Enjoy the journey and the views.

The run starts at 07:00. Entries are limited in both events.

No entries are taken on race day.
