Race 4, folks. We’ve kicked summer 2017/18 off in the best possible way, and we have one big one to go, so don’t miss it.
What is waiting for you at Leeuwenkloof on 26 November? Life is all about choices, and here you have THREE. Short Course (8.8km), Long course (13.9km) or the brand new XL Course (23km).
If you are happy with your current Series® results, then ramp it up to the XL. It’s going to be a great new addition to the Gauteng trail running calendar, with a combination of forest single track, epic views from the koppies above the farm, the potential to run with wild game and the infamous mineshaft “cave” towards the end.
The Long and XL routes take runners through the old mineshaft, which is a special experience all on its own. It is high enough for you to stand up straight and wide enough for 3 people to stand next to each other (wider in some places). And it is lit the whole way, and so a headlamp is not necessary.
The finish zone at Leeuwenkloof is always a special kind of party vibe, bring the whole family as there will be category and lucky draw prizes along with food and drinks to purchase. Remember, kids 10 and under run FREE but must be preregistered online. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for your promo code if you are bringing a PeeWee to the race. We love seeing our future talent tearing up the trails!
Last on the admin, there is no reception at Leeuwenkloof which means two things; You will have to #LaterGram your trail stoke, and you will need cash for late entries or apparel purchases. Best to buy online and collect on the morning.
That’s it, one to go, and it’s a biggie. See you soon!
