Spur Trail Series® Competitions

Steenberg Camera Trap

Get snapped and win - with the Steenberg Camera Trap

Do you ever feel that smile creeping in as you shunt down a single track; or feel the need to just jump for joy or hug your trail buddy? Well then we have just the right place for you to release your inner wildness while out smashing those trails! The Trail Series® in partnership with Steenberg Vineyards brings you the all new Steenberg Camera Trap. So unleash your wild stride this season and get snapped.

About the competition:

  • The Steenberg Camera Trap is an automated photo competition.

  • There will be a camera stationed at a strategic position out on course triggered by an infrared beam.

  • The camera setup will be easily spotted by virtue of  Steenberg Vineyards branded ‘gates’, when you see the gates, unleash your wild stride or do whatever you feel captures the spirit you feel - be it alone or with friends. There will be a warning sign 10m before and a prop box will be stationed behind the gates with props that runners may use to make their photos a bit more interesting and entertaining.

  • You can run through the gates as many times as you want!

  • The day after the event, the Wildrunner team will choose their 3 favourite photos with each winning a bottle of Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc.

  • The three finalists from each event will automatically be entered as finalists into the Steenberg Camera Trap Grand Prize competition. These 12 finalists will be uploaded into an album on Facebook on the Trail Series® page the week after the final race. The photo with the most likes and shares will win the grand prize. Winner will be announced on social media. A grand hand over of the prize will then take place at Steenberg Estates wine cellar at a date agreed with the winner and the Wildrunner team.

  • Grand Prize = 12 mixed bottles of Steenberg wine.

  • Conversation hashtags to use: #CameraTrap #Steenberg #UnleashYourWildStride
